Turn Your Clients Pro: Free @yourdomain.com
Email Accounts

Nothing says unprofessional or “I’m new at this” like: “[email protected]

Your clients (and their audience) deserve better. And thanks to our free hosted email accounts - you can give them better.

Regular, free @yourdomain.com email accounts that easily hook up to Outlook, Gmail, Apple Mail, or any of your favorite email clients.

Step 1: Create a New Hosting Account

Of course, without DNS and a hosting account, there’s no free email hosting!

So the first thing you’ll want to do is sign up for a hosting plan if you haven’t yet. It’s super easy, and should only take a few minutes. You’ll then have instant access to everything we offer - including 10 free email accounts for every site you host with us!

Step 2: Create Your Free Email Account

As mentioned, each hosted site comes with free email addresses which you can add inside of our website management platform: “The Hub.”

The process is as simple as entering your new email and password. Once created, your email accounts will appear in the “Emails” area, where they can be accessed and configured (with our DNS manager) at any time.

Step 3: Connect To Your Preferred
Email Client

Once you’ve added an email account it can then be easily integrated with an email client of your choice.

Each email client has its own configuration steps - which we’ve gone to the trouble of outlining for you in our email hosting documentation. Some popular providers you can connect to include:

  • Apple Mail
  • Outlook.com & Client
  • Thunderbird
  • And more!

Of course, if you get stuck at any point, our friendly 24/7 live support team is always on hand to chat and help get you sorted.

Easy POP For Emails That Won’t Stop…

Connecting to your favorite email clients is achieved via Post Office Protocol (POP). POP is used by clients to retrieve emails from a mail server (like ours!).

As mentioned, every email client is different. But in general, connecting is as simple as copying your email account’s connection information (we supply you with this) over to the client’s POP setup.

Not Ready For Our Free Email Accounts? Try Unlimited Email Forwarding

Another simple way of receiving emails from your custom domains is by email forwarding.

For example, if you want to send an email from , you can forward it to , and then configure Gmail to ‘send as’ .

Quick, easy, and effective! With our hosting you can also do this with UNLIMITED emails. And although forwarding doesn’t let you log into using Outlook, or your iPhone mail app, our free email accounts do!

Looking For Enterprise, Third Party Email Hosting? We Can Help With That Too!

While our free email accounts and forwarding will do the job for most people, if you’re looking for an enterprise strength solution, a third party provider (e.g. G Suite or Office 365) might be the way to go.

These platforms give you their own instructions on how configuration and verification works. But in general, it’s as easy copying the MX records they give you, and inserting them into your domain's DNS records.

And don’t worry, if you have any trouble with this, our support team will happily help you set it all up… for free!

Frequently Asked Questions

Each email account is meant to be used to send, receive, and download email, so the limit on storage is basically how much storage you have on your email client. So basically there’s no limit! However, you’ll need to keep email attachments down to 15MB, and we’ll only ever keep 100MB worth of emails on the server (but that doesn’t matter as it’s not webmail!).
No sending limit! These are straightforward email accounts that you can use as much as you like without limitations. Of course, setting them up to spam people will result in them being limited, but hey, that’s obvious (and in our terms and conditions).
Free email comes with our hosting, sorry! However, you can use our DNS manager to configure free email forwarding or set up professional GSuite, Office 365 or Zoho email.
We currently limit the number of email accounts to 10. If more addresses are needed, we recommend using a dedicated email service, such as G Suite or Zoho.
There is almost certainly some sort of splitting the atom wizardry that will allow this, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Just ask us for more free accounts :)
