Email is a very efficient way to stay in touch with customers and visitors to your website. Your Web Hosting Hub account allows you to create an unlimited number of email addresses. If you're not very familiar with email, let's take a step back and first review what email is and how exactly it works. If you've used email before and are comfortable with the basics, you can skip ahead to our next article and learn how to create an email address.
What is Email?
Email, simply put, is electronic mail.
Instead of paying for a stamp and putting a message in an envelope, the message is typed on your computer and sent digitally through the Internet. This makes keeping in contact much faster as emails are often received almost instantly after they are sent. To send an email, all you need is an email address, a program used to write the email, and an internet connection. We'll assume you have an internet connection, so in the next few articles we'll learn more about how to create an email address and what programs you can use to write email.
What are Email Attachments?
Attachments are additional files that are included in an email message that you send. This can be used to send a picture, a Word document, and much more. This is a great tool to use if you need to send something to someone that is not able to be included in the body of the email - it can be attached and still sent digitally the same way. The larger the attachment, the longer it can take to send. Be sure to keep this in mine if planning to email large files, such as compressed images.
Now that you understand what emails are, go to the next section to create your email account with Web Hosting Hub.
