How to Get and Setup a Business Email with SiteGround and Gmail
This can be easily done
Add cpanel to the end of your website name
You’ll then appear at this login page
2) Type in your username.
3) Type in your password.
4) Click Login
Once your logged on to your cPanel scroll down a bit
1) Click on Email Accounts
1) Make sure you have your website name selected.
If you have just one website you’ll be fine.
If you have more than one click on the dropdown to find it
2) Enter whatever name you would like. I used josh
3) Enter your Password
4) Click Create Account
1) You’ll have your new email created below – sweet !
Now to get ready to set up with Gmail we’ll need to do the following
2) Click on ‘more‘
3) Click Configure Email Client
1) The Highlighed Section !
This is the bit we are going to refer back to.
Leave this page open, start a new tab, and login to your gmail account.
Once you are on the Gmail account you want to setup with your new Business Account
1) Click the Settings Tab
2) Click Settings
On the settings page
1) Click Accounts and Import
Check mail for other Accounts
1) Click Add A Mail Account
A pop up will appear like this
1) Type in your business email address.
Example: firstname.lastname@example.org (that we created in Step 4)
2) Click Next
This will be next and have a preselected option
1) Click Next
This page will appear.
We now need to go back to the previous tab in our cPanel and copy a few things
We need to remember 4 things from here
1) Your Username: Mine = email@example.com
2) Your Password: This is the same one you used to create the business email
3) Incoming Server: Mine = optimizewebsitestutorials.com
4) POP3 Port: 995
This is the connection we’ll be using
Now lets copy these back in on the Google Pop up
As you can see from the image I copied the first one
I entered the Password
POP server – That’s your incoming server
I changed Port to 995
I ticked yes to
Always use a secure connection
Label Incoming messages
1) Then click Add Account
Congratulations you’ve completed that bit
This page will appear.
The white section is the name you can use that will be shown on the mail you send.
I used my name but from a business view I could have used Optimize Websites Tutorials or maybe support
Whichever you decide the next step is to click Next Step
After clicking Next Step head back to your tab with the email cPanel and we need a few things below
Outgoing Server: Mine is optimizewebsitestutorials.com (the same as the incoming server)
Armed with that information let’s head back to the Google Mail
SMTP Server – This is your outgoing server. Copy the information from the previous step
Enter your password. The same as you have been doing before
Make sure Secured Connection using SSL is selected
Change Port to 465
Click Add Account
A confirmation link will appear.
Click it to receive a confirmation code
On the new email in the background you’ll get your confirmation code
Enter your Confirmation Code
You’ve now set up your email !
2 things i like to change.
1) I make my default email that I send and receive coming from my business email. I click make default
2) I click reply from the same address the message was sent to.
You have a dropdown to select which one but you could forget and reply with the normal email
Your email settings should look something like this.
You’re all set up now !
I hope you found this article helpful ! 🙂
