In this tutorial, you will learn how to create email accounts from cPanel for a particular domain name. As FastWebHost provides cpanel based email hosting, we'll show you email account setup and usage.

First, you need to login to cPanel in order to create a email account. The URL below is the example of accessing various cPanel services.

http://www.yourdomainname/cpanel or https://www.yourdomainname:2083

https://serverhostname:2083 or https://serverIP:2083

The word “yourdomainname” would need to be replaced with your own domain name. The word “serverhostname” would need to be replaced with the server name your account is currently on.


Once you login cPanel, then try to create Email Accounts from cPanel -> Email -> Email Accounts.

Here are the fields you need to fill in, in order to create your new email accounts:
