Getting started guide: Email Hosting

All Web Hosting plans come with Email Hosting. If you have already registered a domain, then you can now set up professional email addresses — boosting customer confidence in your brand, and enhancing efficiency of delivery when sending emails to multiple recipients.

If you have the domain example.com, then you can set up email addresses like sales@example.com or support@example.com.

This guide will show you how to get started — from how to create and access your email accounts, to the different ways you can personalise them.

1. Connecting your Domain to Email Hosting

If your domain and web hosting are with Crazy Domains, then your Email Hosting is automatically connected to them.

If your domain is registered with another provider, then you need to first connect it with your web hosting. To do that, you need to log in to your domain’s management console and update the Name Servers to that of your Web Hosting provider.
