Hi I have had my domain for while now and would like to add email. I am not sure what to do or next step.
I have tried to search through site help, forums, etc. but not luck yet.
I was wondering what does it take to add/create email for my domain. example.
domain is xyx.com, how can I add a "firstname.lastname@example.org"
thank you for any help
Solved! Go to Solution.
In order to set up email for a domain, you first must have hosting of some kind, whether it is general web hosting, or only email hosting. Do you have hosting set up for your domain? If you do, is it through GoDaddy? If you have, for example, shared Linux hosting with cPanel, the setup is relatively simple. If you could post some additional details about your hosting type, I'm sure someone can help you out.
Thank you for posting! I'll answer you both below.
@onefrequentflye - If you can't make more than one address, you may need to purchase more. I'd recommend reaching out to our support team so they can have a look at your account and tell you what you need.
I have had my domain with GoDaddy for some time, and was hosted by another company. I used my email that utilized that domain name as well, for no extra fee. I decided to move my hosting to Godaddy and now my email doesn't work (as an alias with google..always been there). Do I have to redirect, change settings or pay extra now??
Do all hostings come with free emails? I chose a plan with domain registration + hosting. It says at the bottom, you get email but not in the purchase check out
my domain is .xyz and looking to add 4-5 emails. What is he cheapest plan? Tx
I have a domain at GoDaddy that have email forwarding. Now I bought another domain, but I can't find where to setup the email forwarding to that domain.
Can someone please help me with how to do it?
I am pretty sure I checked all the options in the management panel, but can't find how to do so...
Thanks in advanced,
Thank you for posting. We have a knowledge base where you can find all our support articles. You can access it at the top of the page here if you click "Help." The guide you need is this one, Set up a forwarding email account.
1. Some domain registrars support creating an email address whose email is not stored on their servers. All email sent to this address is immediately forwarded to another account, e.g. Gmail.
2. I believe some of these same providers also allow the other account (e.g. Gmail) to send mail "as" or "from" this new address.
Does GoDaddy offer either of these services? If so, what is the cost, or what else must you buy to get them?
Good Evening - And I apologise for the potentially basic question. Before I go ahead and purchase a domain I'm wondering if it's possible to add an email address to the domain after a few months as I don't need it straight away?
