I am assuming that you already have a website and a domain running live on the web, or if it is not running live on the web then you have the domain and the host. Well, if yes, then go on and log in to the C panel of your website. You can access the C panel of your website from the dashboard or simply type the domain and in the end (yourdomain.com/cpane), type the C panel. If you don’t have the credentials of the C panel, ask for it from your host provider.
Once you are on the cPanel of your hosting, you can see a category of email, click on the email accounts.
To create a New Custom business email address, click on the create button.
This is the place where you have to enter a name for your custom business email address. A good example is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. In my case, I will be creating an exemplary email address by my own name. Then enter a strong password and click create.
