Hi,

Here are instructions to create an email address:

Important: Before you can set up any email accounts, you must already have a domain associated with your website account. Domains must be fully registered, pointed, or transferred in order to set up email with that domain.


  1. Click Email on the left.




  2. Click Manage my email account.




  3. If you have more than one domain in your account, confirm the current domain is the one you want. If not, click switch to another domain.




  4. Click Add New.




  5. In the Email address field, enter a name for your new email account.


  6. Important: Just enter a name, don't include the @ sign or anything extra. A lot of people use generic names here like admin, info, or sales, for example.

  7. Complete the rest of the form by entering your first name and last name.


  8. Create the password for your email account. Passwords are case sensitive


  9. Tip: The password you create should follow our password recommendations. Don't make it easy for others to guess your password and access your account. We recommend using a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.

  10. Click Save.
