How to Quickly Setup Your
Custom Domain Email
in Siteground [Picture Tutorial]
Have you ever received an email from a business that didn’t use their name in the email address? Let’s say you order something from “Mommy Blogs” but the emails you receive come from ‘MommyBlogsAdmin@gmail.com’ instead of Admin@MommyBlogs.com?
See the difference? The second looks more professional and professionalism is becoming increasingly important since spammers are a dime a dozen nowadays. Setting up a custom domain email is an easy way to start building trust with your readers.
Setting up a custom domain may seem complicated but it’s pretty simple- especially if you’re using Siteground.
Keep reading to discover how you can set up your custom domain and start building trust with your readers from the very first email you send.
How to Setup Your Custom Domain Email
Setting up your domain email is one of those things that seems like it would be ridiculously hard but I promise it’s not. As a matter of fact, when you’re done you’re going to think “That’s it?”
Step 1: Sign into Siteground
I didn’t include a screenshot here because if you’ve setup your account then you’re familiar with this step.
However, if you haven’t setup your hosting yet, check out my article on starting a blog which includes a picture tutorial for setting up hosting on Siteground.
Step 2: Click on My Accounts
Step 3: Select cPanel
Step 4: Scroll Down Until You See the ‘Mail’ section then Select ‘EMAIL ACCOUNTS’
Step 5: Create Your Email Name
To create your email type in the name you want into the blue highlighted box. You can create as many emails as you want so you can use your first name, first and last name, info, help, or admin.
Then go to to section after the ‘@’ sign and select your domain (if you only have one, that will be the only drop down available).
Create your password then type it in again.
You can leave the email memory limit or make it larger. The memory amount that autofills should be plenty and you can always change it later.
Once you’re done select ‘Create Account’ and you’re done!
Accessing Your Domain Email
Now that you’ve setup your domain email you have to access it. Simply type your domain name into the address box followed by /webmail.
So to get to my domain I type in ‘www.bloggingenthusiast.com/webmail’ and this page comes up.
The first time you login you will see the page below which allows you to decide which program (aka webmail application) you want to use.
If you’re not sure, you don’t have to set a default view. Just click a picture and the next time you login you will see this page again. If you are familiar with one of these then you can click the text ‘Set as Default’ below the one you want.
No worries if you do select one- all of the applications are easy to use and you can change it later if you change your mind.
Congratulations on setting up your domain email. There is something exciting about seeing an email coming from your own domain.
