After you've called the page, for security reasons you will be redirected to a secured connection.
Sign in with your username and password, which you've received in your welcome package.

Now insert the desired prefix for your new eMail-Address and choose the domain (important if you have more than one).

The eMail address now is created. To use the eMail-Address, now you have to set it as account or you have to set up a redirect.

Now insert the desired target eMail-address and click on "Add redirect".
It is possible to combine accounts with redirects.
A "Catchall"-eMail-Address also accepts eMails that are sent to any not defined prefixes for the domain.
There is the benefit of receiving the eMail even if the sender did misspell your eMail-address, but there is also the disadvantage of a extremely high amount of additional spam.
To define an eMail-address as catchall-eMail-Address for a domain, click on "Toggle" in the field "Change E-Mail-Addresse."
There is only one catchall-eMail-Address possible per domain.
The amount of possible eMail-addresses is depending on the chosen offer and upgrades.
You could book a higher offer, an upgrade or aks us for a special offer if nothing is suitable for you.
A list of your eMail-addresses is shown when you click in the left handed menu in the category "E-Mail" on "Addresses". There you can change or delete existing eMail-addresses.

If your new account should reach your document root, leave the path empty. To limit access on a special sub folder, type it in.

If 2 domains are supposed to point to the same website, just set up the second domain as alias for the first one.
Therefore click in the left handed menu on "Settings" within the category "Domains", then on the edit pencil of the desired domain (in this example "your-second-website.com").
