Emails are an important form of communication in an official setup. People have now opted to use emails associated with their company name addresses in form of domain names, instead of the popular Gmail and yahoo addresses. For instance, by owning a company name with the domain name company.com, you can create emails such as [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and so on. The names to be attached to the email are unlimited, depending on the hosting provider/hosting package. This article illustrates how to create an email in a few simple steps from Cpanel.
