1.5 [VIDEO] How to create your business email

The video above explains how to set your email up with hostgator. If you have chosen Hostpapa, our preferred host, you may skip this lesson and the following assignment if you wish.

If you would like your business email with Hostpapa, it is available following the same steps as with Hostgator. If in doubt, contact Hostpapa support and they will help you get this setup.

See you in the next video!

Hi Scott
On clicking Email Accounts from the Hostgator dashboard, it loads a completely different page from yours. It is loading with a default email account. Is this a problem? It didn't have the (name) details I wanted. So I opted to create another account with my details.
Question: It being a default, does that mean that my email has less features?

Hi Scott,

I just finished installing WordPress from my HostGator dashboard following instructions on the previous video. But on returning to my HostGator homepage, the WordPress is not there. I've refreshed severally and even logged out and logged in again but I still can't find it there. Please advise 🙏🙏

Hi, is it possible to change the domain name I registered in Module 0 to a different name? I used my name as the domain name, and now I don't know what to use for my new email address. Kindly assist.

hello scott

My HostGator page is totally different from yours.
I created a email account. But for the raiming i can't continue because my interface is different of yours. I'm in a French country and I'm not a professional of English language .I mostly work with the pictures .

Hi Scott,
.The interface that comes up is different from your video. It's a cPanel email accounts interface and its already set a a default email. Reading comments below I guess Hostgator has updated the system.
