The Domain Manager plan now includes the option to create and manage mailboxes and send/receive emails, just like a regular web hosting account does, thus taking the plan one step closer to the “real” hosting service.
What is the Domain Manager upgrade about?
The Domain Manager plan is the smallest of all the packages on our platform and it targets a specific niche – namely people who do not need or are not yet ready to commit to a fully fledged hosting account.
This change, will allow you as a customers, to order sole domain name registrations/transfers from our store and to manage all of them from one and the same place without the need to invest in a web hosting account to achieve it.
The Domain Manager plan is great for users who want to lay their hands on an attractive domain name for a given future project before anyone does.
So far, domain owners have only been able to register and transfer domain names and to edit some basic settings (Whois details, name servers, domain parking pages, etc.).
The integration of the emailing functionality takes the Domain Manager plan to a whole new usage level.
It allows domain owners to send and receive electronic messages, i.e. to make actual use of their domain names.
This way, you as a client, can have personalized email addresses for your individual or business needs right from the start.
Why is the email upgrade so valuable?
The addition of the emailing functionality to the Domain Manager plan represents a great selling point for your basic offering.
Here are its two key advantages:
1- added value for domain owners
The Domain Manager plan-included email service, gives domain owners the option to manage their emails from their accounts, which takes them one step closer to becoming full-fledged hosting clients.
Also, with this option included in our Control Panel, users wishing to avoid the hassle and the expense of building and managing a full-blown website just to have custom mailboxes for their business or personal use, is just unbeatable.
After all, it’s much more affordable with us than the competition and this is exactly what we are giving you. If, for example, you are a freelance translator and do not want to invest in a website for the time being, you can register a domain (e.g. ema-translations.com) via the Domain Manager and add a mailbox under it (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
How to make use of the new email feature?
The new emailing functionality is available to all new and existing Domain Manager plan users.
You will recognize it by the Mail’s icon on the domain management dashboard’s index page:
Once you’ve clicked on it, you’ll be taken to the well-known Email Manager interface, which is accessible to all regular web hosting account owners who are using the Hepsia Control Panel:
From there, you will be able to create mailboxes, to set up email forwarding and autoresponder messages, to create mailbox spam filters, etc., i.e. they will be able to perform all important email management operations:
By taking into account the regular email usage on our platform, we’ve set specific quotas with respect to the maximum number of mailboxes and the total amount of email storage space.
This way, we’ll prevent the use of the emailing functionality for abusive purposes and will cater only to customers’ real email hosting needs.
Uses can find more details in the Account usage section of their Domain Manager accounts.
