how to create a custom email account for your blog domain

When you own your website you get to not only choose your domain name, you also can set up a custom email address with your domain name in it.

For example, if your domain name is WaltertheWarrior.com, you get to create an account like walter@walterthewarrior.com or info@walterthewarrior.com

For those of you who set up their blog using my Step 2 page, you get to create personalized email addresses at no additional charge. Let me show you how:

How to Create a Custom Email Account for Your Blog Domain

Step One: Go to the BlueHost homepage and click the “Login” tab in the upper right area.

Step Two: Type in your username and password to your BlueHost account.

^Remember here that your Bluehost account password may be different than your WordPress blog.

^^Forgot your password? You can always click the “forgot password” link on this page to reset the password.

Step Five: Put in your new email account details and click the create button.

^Don’t worry about the default webmail client. I do typically choose Roundcube because Bluehost recommends it.

^^I like to select “Unlimited mailbox size” so that way my email inbox never gets too full. 🙂

^This is an easy process. Just go back to the Bluehost homepage whenever you want to lock in. Then click the login tab at the top right, then choose the “webmail login” option.

You might want to use these tools for some email marketing. Although I recommend MailChimp for your email marketing needs, I may come back and do a blog post on these useful features.

Here’s how to set up personalized email accounts with your new blog!
