9. Web Hosting
a. A web "host" is the company that will host your published website files on their server and make them accessible/browsible on the world-wide web.
c. If you answered 'yes' to '9.b' above, we will be able to provide you with email addresses that are associated with your domain. (*Note: If your domain/site will be hosted elsewhere, you will need to speak to them about email accounts and aliases. If this is the case, skip ahead to 10 on the next page.)
You can choose between "real" email accounts or email aliases, or you can have some of each.
i. "Real email accounts are simply a location on our hosting server where email messages sent to you are held until you retrieve them. When you connect to the internet (dial-up, cable, DSL, fibre optic, etc.) and open your email via an email client (Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, macOS Mail, IncrediMail, Mailbox, iOS Mail, etc.), it will log into your email account on our email server and download your messages. An email account is what people are commonly reffering to when they talk about their email address. You can also access the email in your account via webmail from any computer in the world with internet access.
If 'yes', please list all of the addresses below you will require to be associated with your registered domain (Please just provide the portion of the address before the '@' symbol in theemail address - your domain name will come after the '@'.) The designation is typically a person's name your name; other examples are "admin", "office", "author", "artist" and other generic job roles.
#1: #2: #3: #4: #5: #6:
ii. An email alias looks just like a "real" email account, but it operates completely differently behind the scenes. These addresses are often used for non-person specific addresses such as support@, info@, sales@, and so on. These addresses do not have any storage or file space reserved for them on the email server; rather they immediately forward all messages they receive to one or more existing "real" email accounts.
If 'yes', please list all of the aliases below you will require to be associated with your registered domain (Please just provide the portion of the address before the '@' symbol in the email address - your domain name will come after the '@'.) AND the existing email address that you want the alias to auto-forward the email message to. Please fill out the space below as per this example:
info@ to be forwarded to: firstname.lastname@example.org (email alias) (real email account)
#1 (email alias) to be forwarded to: (real email address) #2 (email alias) to be forwarded to:(real email address)#3 (email alias) to be forwarded to:(real email address)#4 (email alias) to be forwarded to:(real email address)
