How to create an email account

The amount of global email users is increasing yearly. By 2023, the figure will have increased by over 25% since 2019. Having an email is paramount these days and creating one is more straightforward than it seems. It only requires a few steps. Check them out below.

Man creates email account.

1. Find a domain host

A domain host is a company responsible for keeping your webmail online. It also ensures its security and stores the messages and files exchanged safely. one.com is an example of an email domain host.

2. Choose a hosting plan

one.com offers two options of hosting plans for your email. The first is “Email Essential.” It’s free for the first year, offering you the following:

3. Register a domain name

A domain name is the part of your email address that comes after the @. So, for example, in the email name.surname@one.com, the domain name is one.com. If you’re still undecided on your domain name, you can read some tips on finding the perfect domain name.

Once you’ve decided, check if your domain name is available. There can’t be two domains with the same domain name. If your perfect option is unavailable, try an alternative.

You could use a free email, but depending on your intentions, that’s inadvisable. For example, if you’re thinking of creating a professional business address, your message may seem less authoritative if you send it through a free domain. Registering a domain has other benefits.

4. Choose a Top Level Domain (TLD)

5. Log in to your one.com control panel

After registering your domain name, you can start setting up an email account. To do so, log in to your account and go to your one.com control panel.

6. Click on ‘Email’

Once you log into your account, you’ll see the “email” option. Click on it.

7. Select “New account”

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on this option.

8. Choose what you want your email to be

You’ve already chosen the domain name, which comes after the @. Now, you need to think of what comes before it. A safe bet is using the format name + last name, as in the example you saw above: name.surname@company.com. But if you wish to protect your privacy, you can also create an anonymous email account.

How to create an anonymous email account

Choose a name that doesn’t include your own. For example, you can call your email contact@company.com. Also, when registering your domain, you can do so anonymously, so your information will appear redacted on the WHOis database. one.com also helps you.

one.com encrypts your messages through an HTTPS protocol and an SSL certificate, which changes the information exchanged. Only the sender and the recipient can see its original form. This measure guarantees that third parties cannot access it.

9. Select “Create account”

All done. Your email is ready for you to use it.
