So, I’m looking for an email host. My webpage is a wordpress.com site and my domain names are managed by CrazyDomains.

So I’m keen to set up an email account for my new business (flourish yoga & wellbeing) but am not sure what to look for in email hosting.

So here’s my wish list:
1. I want to be able to have multiple addresses (although probably only 2-3) (eg. [email protected])

2. I want to be able to forward them to my regular email address so I know when something has come in

3. I want it to have a webmail interface so I can reply from that email address from anywhere

Everyone seems to offer those things – is it simplest to go with CrazyDomains or doesn’t it really matter?

What else should I be looking for? I’m hoping to start an e-newsletter and so will also need to be able to manage that but perhaps that is easier done from mailchimp or something similar???

Help please!

Many thanks,

Bernie

Hi Bernie,

Some people like to keep their domains and web hosting services separate. It boils down to your own preference. To answer your questions:

1.) Multiple email addresses shouldn’t be a problem. When signing up for an email hosting plan, make sure that it states the number of email accounts that can be created.

2.) Forwarding emails can be done through a control panel such as cPanel. You can opt to receive emails to both email accounts.

3.) If a web host is offering email hosting, they may include Roundcube, Squirrelmail and Horde which are webmail interfaces.

Also when you’re setting up email accounts on Outlook or Mac Mail, I highly recommend using IMAP over POP3 :)

Cheers,
Shaun
