How to Create an Email Address and Connect to Gmail (Hostgator + Others)

This is a super easy tutorial to show you how to create an email address with your website domain using hostgator (or any other host server for that matter) and then connect it to gmail so you can receive and send messages from gmail instead of having to go to your host server. Enjoy!

  • Log into your cpanel
  • Go to mail section
  • Click on Email Accounts
  • Create your email account and password
  • Select Unlimited (that’s what I recommend!)
  • Then click create account

Now let’s set up our gmail account with our new email

  • Go to your gmail account
  • Click on the gear icon and click on settings
  • Then click on the Accounts and Import tab
  • Click on Add Pop3 email account
  • Put in your email, password and [email protected] and select port 110
  • Then select your options and click add account

If you want to be able to reply to people using your email alias then select that option and click next

  • Then put in the name you want as the reply name
  • Then select treat as an alias
  • Now change the server to
  • Port 25
  • Put in your username email and password
  • Then click add account
  • Now you need to confirm your email
  • Go to
  • Type in your email and password and login
  • Click to read mail
  • Now you should see an email from gmail, click on that link or add the verification code.

And now everything should be set up! Let me know if you have any questions!
