Then, you can either access a webmail account right from cPanel or set up your new Gmail account with the help of Gsuite which cost you minimum Rs 150/- per month.

How to Access a Webmail Account?

To access a webmail account use this URL: yourwebsitename/webmail. For example www.rithika.org/webmail. Then enter your email id and password to log in. Start using your Business email Account.

How many Email Accounts we can Create?

The number of email accounts depends on your Hosting plan. For Example in Bigrock Shared Hosting starter plan, you will get 5 Email accounts. While choosing the hosting plan you get to see all these options.

How to Add a New Domain 

Adding a new domain will always depend on Hosting plan. If your hosting plan says one website you cannot add any new domain into your cPanel. To add a domain into cPanel you need to have a multi-website hosting plan. If you have multi-Website hosting Plan then follow below steps to Add a new Domain in cPanel. Look for “Domains” Section. cPanel lets you create two types of domains.

  • Addon Domains: These are the main Domains with TLD. Eg: rithika.org 
  • Sub Domains: It is a second website with unique content. But this is not a new domain. It is a division of your main Domain. Eg: help.rithika.org

Once it processes the request it will notify you with success message. Now to see the location of this domain in the file manager just navigate to File manager section of cPanel.
