I'm the webmaster for a non profit site. Our group is looking into changing over to email addresses that include the domainname.org.   I was all set to add webmaster@domainname.org, but Homestead came up with a few other suggestions, including info and admin.  I'm curious if webmaster is still a term being widely used?

A quick google search just turned up this:  Yes, Webmaster is an outdated term. Oct 4, 2017

Thanks, but we're trying to get away from private email addresses. Still, it's a thought. ETA,  Just your first name or DBArnold??

Webmaster isn't widely used, no. However, if you have an extra email slot, it doesn't hurt to have it, in case someone does try to contact you via a webmaster email.

Does admin mean the same thing, in your view?
