When you first create a new website with a fresh domain and hosting, it’s best to go ahead and create some generic email addresses on the domain so it seems more legit. I create these emails through cPanel in a few minutes by generating a random 18 character password for each email and storing them somewhere secure. In this short article, I’ll show you how to create emails in cPanel and the recommended emails to create.

List of common email addresses to create for new domain names

If you don’t want to check all of these email addresses, I recommend creating an email forwarder for each email account so all the emails get sent to a main email address. It’s always good to have a custom email for yourself on your new website. This can be your main email address so you can simply forward the others and won’t have to check every one.

How to create an email forwarder in cPanel

Surely you don’t want to configure a handful of email accounts from the same domain into your email client. It’s a hassle to configure and check multiple email addresses all the time, so it might be in your best interest to create several email forwarders that send all received emails to your primary email on your domain or another email host. You can also create an entire domain forwarder and send all emails to a different domain name.

  1. cpanel email forwarders step 1Log into your cPanel back end typically found at www.YourDomain.com/cpanel.

  2. cpanel email forwarders step 2Find and click on “Forwarders” inside the Email section.

  3. Select your domain name underneath the “Managing” heading.

  7. Enter your destination email address underneath the “Destination” heading. This will be the email address that receives all of the forwarded emails.

  8. Finally, click on “Add Forwarder” and repeat the same process if you need to add additional forwarders.

Having all of these emails set up on your new domain name is a good way to establish trust with your brand and not get marked as a spammy domain name and potentially blacklisted. It’s a good idea to always create at least some of these default email addresses for all new domain names you create, whether it be for your personal business or even clients of yours. I’ve had to do this many times for new websites over the years, so I just decided to compile a list of common domain name email addresses I typically create when I set up new domain names.
