How do I set up a new email address?

new-email-thriveSetting up a new email address isn’t too tricky if you know where to go and what to do. There are a couple of steps involved.

  1. Set up the email address with your hosting provider
  2. Access your email in a browser window
  3. Set up an email client (like Microsoft Outlook on Windows, or Apple Mail on Mac).  

1. Setting up the email address with your hosting provider

At Thrive Web Design, we generally work with two different web hosts Netregistry and Hostgator and they both use cPanel.

Hostgator have a great video to show you how to set up a new email address.

Instructions

  1. Login to cPanel (see below for more instructions) and click Email Accounts.
  2. Fill in the name you want and select the domain name from the drop-down.
  3. Type the desired password twice.
  4. Change the quota if you want.
  5. Click Create.

To log in to cpanel

Only follow these if you don’t know how to login to cPanel

  1. Type your domain name with cpanel following ie http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel
  2. Then enter your username and password.
  3. If you’re with Hostgator these details would have been emailed to you when you signed up
  4. If you’re with Netregistry, then we would have emailed these details to you.

2. Access your email in a browser window

To login to your email via a web browser:

  1. In the URL bar type in your domain name with webmail following ie http://www.yourdomain.com/webmail
  2. In the user name section, type your full e-mail address (example: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). In the password section, provide the password which you provided when you created the email account. Then hit enter. You are now logged into webmail.
  3. You will be given the option of which email client you would like to use, click the one you like and you’ll be delivered into you mail.

3. Set up an email client (like Microsoft Outlook on Windows, or Apple Mail on Mac)

To set up your email to work on your computer via software like MS Outlook or Apple mail, you just need to select your host and email software from the list below; then click the link.

If you’re using a different webhost then they will most likely have their own set of help articles and tutorials about how to achieve the above.
