When you need a website email address with the domain it means your work in not by an individual, it is now a brand, but if you are new in blogging then must read Blogger vs WordPress which is the best choice to start with your new blog.
Normally we use a public email address like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org but when you visit some professional blog or website you will find the admin or sales email address like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is better to use your website email address to email your subscribers it affects them genuinely to visit your blog. If I use my personal email address it will not give too much effect to make them visit my website.
The email link to your website domain shows the professionalism of your blog also ranks your email higher as compared to an individual email address.
Today, I will tell you step by step guide to creating the website email address and forward the emails to your personal email account for easy use.
Yes, you can link your website email address to your personal email address.
When you create your email address with the domain you must have email clients on your PC like outlook express or Cpanel webmail clients, but it is better to direct your website email address to your public email account in order to get fast and responsive email handling.
When someone sends the email to your website it will directly forward to your personal email address and if you want to reply them it will send it by the name of your website email address without logging in to your website email account.
