Important Tip on Hostgator Email

June 23rd, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

Ok… you are the proud owner of a domain name now and you have also seen the sense in hosting your blog on your own space rather than on a free server space with someone. Chances are you have opted for hostgator hosting as that is pretty robust and reliable, with good after sales support. So far so good.

Now how would you like to have multiple emails @yourdomain.com? yourname@yourdomain.com / sales@yourdomain.com / anything@yourdomain.com? Would be good, right?

A coachee of mine (is there a word like coachee?) was using this incredible backlinking software which creates email accounts with hundreds of sites on the fly and automatically creates backlinks from them to your site. Since he was on hostgator, he invoked the advanced email option in the backlinking software and happily got the software to automatically create and verify ‘variousnames@hisdomain.com’ … but here’s the tragedy …

variousnames@hisdomain.com had to first be ENABLED by the hostgator staff and forwarded to a previously set-up working email address like hisname@hisdomain.com before they became operational. Without these 2 steps one will not get the benefit of the “catch-all” property of the hostgator email system.

Fortunately not much was lost and my coachee was back on track with anyword@hisdomain.com being received at hisname@hisdomain.com in a matter of minutes. But I thought I’d write this post so anyone else wanting anyword@theirdomains.com would know that they must:

1. Contact hostgator staff (live chat) to “enable catch-all” – it is not ON by default

2. Forward the catch-all to a working address which is the ‘default@theirdomain.com’

Only when these 2 steps are done would hostgator email receive mail for anyword@yourdomain.com. And this feature is amazingly useful if you’re using the backlinking software we use for results like this << must watch video!
