You’ve got a WordPress blog and want to create a professional email address such as “info@yourwebsitename.com”.

Know that cPanel is a platform that manages nearly all your blog components such as email account, files, speed, storage space, security and etc. Therefore, it houses email creation and management.

Steps to Create A Professional Email address

Step 1: Log-in to the cPanel platform

1a. To log-in, there is a piece of information your hosting provider will send to you.

Look through it, there is a section titled cPanel.

The web address will appear like – http://www.yourwebsitename.com/cpanel

Or any web address provided.

Visit the web address and a web page like the image below will emerge.

2d. To create new email address, input an Email ID in the rectangular box “Email

For example: “Kunle”, demo, info, admin, support and etc.

2e. Input your password in the second rectangular box “Password:” and input it again in the third box: “Confirm Password:”.

You can as well click “Password Generator“; it’ll create a strong password.

2f. Allocate storage space to this newly created email address by specifying a figure or check “unlimited”.

2g. Finally, click “Create Account” and wait for a few seconds to be created.

When successful, it’ll appear under “Account @ Domain” sub-section such as “admin@domain.com

This is a clear process to create a new email address.

Note: The hosting provider determines how many emails addresses you can create.

It can be limited or unlimited.

Step 3: How to check if you’ve got an Email.

It’s almost like checking Gmail or Yahoo but this time, with a little twist.

There are 2 options to achieve this.

The First option:

3a. In Email Account section, scroll down to the sub-section Account @ Domain where the new email address created is positioned.

3b. In the far-right end, you’ll see the “More” button.

Click it and a drop-down menu with (Access Webmail, Configure Email Client and etc.) will appear.

Click on any (the image Logo) and you’ll have immediate access to your email box.

I prefer roundcube and this option of checking email because it’s easier to achieve my goal with fewer steps than the second option which I’m about to explain next.
