How To Create Email Account In Namecheap cPanel | Access Webmail featured

Have you bought domain and web hosting on Namecheap and no idea whatsoever to create an email account? Don’t worry! You’re in the right place.

In this tutorial, I will guide you step-by-step on how to create your email account on Namecheap cPanel and How to access Namecheap Webmail.

An email created by linking it to your domain such as “info@johnsmith.com” is also called business email or private email. In “info@johnsmith.com” the “johnsmith.com” is a domain that has been linked to username “info”.

How many email accounts you can create depends on the hosting package that you have purchased. The “Stellar” Shared Hosting Package is the most cheapest Namecheap package that allows you to create 30 email accounts. If you require more you can request them to increase the quantity.

The other Shared Hosting packages i.e. “Stellar Plus” and “Stellar Business” allow you to create unlimited email accounts. In general you create 2 to 5 business email accounts, but if you have a large company having plenty of employees then you need large number of email accounts.
