Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gandi’s YouTube channel! As you may know, for every domain name registered at Gandi, we offer 2 free, 3 GB, standard email accounts. If you want to build a professional online presence or if you’re just starting an online store, setting up an email address will be a great help for both you and your customers!

Having your own, custom email address will not only help you earn the trust of your customers, but it can also strengthen your brand’s professional image.
Let’s look at how to create an email address after you’ve registered your domain name! First, click on “domain name” on the left after logging in to your Gandi account. Select the domain name you’d like to create an email address for. Then click the “Email” column on the top of the page.

For each domain name registered, you can create 2 standard email addresses for free. And you can always purchase another standard or premium email account any time you want. Click “Create” and then navigate to the setting page. Enter the email address you want to create, and then the password of your choice.
You can also choose to add an alias below.
An alias allows you to create different alternative email addresses that use the same domain name and all forward to the address they’re aliases of. The advantage is you receive all emails, which can cover a variety of functions, in one single mailbox.

For example, here, we could add,, or as aliases, so that we can manage emails sent to all of these addresses without having to switch between different email accounts. Click “Create” to finish this process.
Now, before you start using the email address you just created, the last step is to set up your email client and you’re good to go!

Click your email address on the “Email” tab page. Click on the “Go to Webmail” button in the top right corner. And select the webmail of your choice. Finally, log in to your account by entering an email address and password.
And voilà!
You can now access your brand new mailbox and start sending emails to all your customers with your own, custom email address!
