If you have a domain name only account with us and you are looking to set up Email forwarding on your control panel then this is an easy to follow, step by step guide on how to do so.
First of all you will need your control panel login details to login to your account.
- You can get to the login page by going placing “cp.” In front of your domain name. i.e. cp.domainname.com
If you have lost or forgotten your login details for your control panel then email: email@example.com and we will be able to reset the password for you. If you have a particular secure password you wish to use then include that in the email and it shall be change to that.
Once you have logged into your account you will see the following page from the attachment.
Forwarding Emails to Gmail/Hotmail accounts.
If you do not wish to set up an email client such as Outlook or Macmail although you would still like to have an email address associated with your domain name but use an online email service that you are happy with then this is the steps for you.
Step one: You will want to go back into “Email Controls” and select “forwarding”. This is where you will be able to map email aliases from your domain name to another email address.
Step Two: Once you are in the forwarding section then make sure you read and understand the text before clicking “Create Alias”.
Step Three: In the Alias box you will want to place the name you wish use for your domain name email. i.e. info, enquiry, Sam. This will make your firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
Step four: In the Destination box you will want to Select “Send to address:” and place in your full Gmail or Hotmail email address.
Step five: Click create Alias
Note: If you have already set up an email account then you will not be able to use the same alias.
