Tutorial: Connect Your Domain Based Email to Your Gmail Account

Often the web mail interface provided by hosting providers for domain based email, are limited in functionality and performance, and often cause user frustration. Some business owners do not use domain based email because it can be complicated. But using your branded website address builds trust with customers and enhances your brand.

However, Google offers a couple of options for managing your domain based email. If you need this for multiple people, G Suite from Google offers great functionality and numerous features in one place for a reasonable price for business customers.


If you’re looking to save a bit of money and only need this functionality for one or two people, you can add an mail forwarder in cPanel to securely send your domain mail to your Gmail inbox for easy management. Then go into your Gmail settings–>Accounts and Import–>Send Mail As–>Add New Email. You will need your server info, username, and password for your account. Watch this video for a quick visual tutorial.
