Want to know how to set up your email from your Bluehost account?
We have the easy step by step instructions for you to follow to get your own email address.
Creating a professional email account is a crucial step to take when you launch your site. Having a custom email from your domain shows you are a professional and is necessary for all businesses.
Step-by-step instructions to set up your email using Bluehost.
We are going to start by setting up your FREE business email in your Bluehost dashboard!
If you would like to set up your FREE business email with Bluehost, you can do so by clicking on the “Advanced” tab.
From the advanced section, you will then scroll down to where you see the “Email” section.
You can then click on “Email Accounts” to add a free email account related to this website!
NOTE: This is also the dashboard you will come back to add any other elements like a temporary autoresponder.
You can then go in and create the email of your choice by clicking on the ‘create’ button.
You can then enter the information you please such as your email address of choice which will automatically be followed by your blog/website URL. For example, mine will be: “Pete@Peteisneat.com”.
You will also be asked to create your password of choice for your account.
After you create your email you will be directed back to this page where you can then manage your email account and choose your default webmail application that you would like to use.
Choose any of the following:
Based on the Webmail application you choose your email will look like 1 of these 3 examples below.
You can access this by clicking on “Check Mail”. You will then be directed to a page that looks like one of these 3!
From here, you can start writing emails.
If you want to use Gmail (G Suite) for your Business Email Address, you can set it up in Your Bluehost Dashboard with G Suite. (this is a paid option)
When it comes to creating your website, having a business email is very important because it helps create a professional image as well as builds trust for your business!
So, let's begin…
Bluehost offers two different options for emails, Microsoft Office 365 starting at $4.99/mo for the basic package or G Suite for $6/mo with all the features you need.
We recommend and use G Suite!
G Suite allows you to either pay monthly or yearly. If you decide to pay yearly you will actually receive two months free!
You can also choose the number of users you want for this email account.
We are going to go ahead and pick the yearly option and add it to our cart as an example.
Once you add your option to your cart, you will be able to use the same payment method or choose a different one if desired.
Once you are ready, press “process order”.
Once your order is processed, you will see an order confirmation with your invoice number as well as a contact number. This is the number you can call in case you run into any issues, which is very rare.
On the order confirmation page, there is an option to “manage” your purchase. You will want to click that and create your business email for G Suite.
After you enter the correct information and press “create” you will see this message while your account is being processed.
Click the “G Suite login” button to log into your Gmail email account.
You will then enter your email and password as well be asked to agree to Google’s G Suite terms.
You will then be brought to your G Suite Admin Console where you can access all of your data, reports, billing, domains, users, and many more.
