Beginner's Guide to Email at your Domain
With every domain purchased, you will receive Freeola's One Address - this is one email address free at your domain (such as [email protected]). This will be a fully functional email address with the ability to send emails and access mail via Freeola Webmail Lite.
You can create an unlimited number of email addresses at your domain (on top of your One Address), however these additional addresses will only work for incoming mail, unless you choose to upgrade to EmailPro.
You will need to create the email addresses; this can be done very easily from the MyFreeola Control Panel (under Email Settings - then Create New Email Addresses).
You can set them up in your preferred mail client (such as Outlook, Thunderbird or your phone's mail app), or set them up to forward to another email address.
Your Freeola One Address can be accessed via Freeola Webmail Lite. If you have Freeola broadband or our premium email service EmailPro, you can access all addresses on the service via Freeola Webmail Pro.
If you have a domain with GetDotted, unlimited POP inboxes are free (allowing you to receive emails but not send via Freeola's servers). There are no limits to how many addresses you can create.
All domains purchased from Freeola & GetDotted will receive a free Freeola One Address - this is one email address (at your domain) with an unlimited POP3 inbox, the ability to send emails and the use of Freeola Webmail Lite.
In order to make use of the Webmail Pro facility, use advanced spam controls, send mail from our servers and to have an IMAP account (which you can sync across your computer, laptop, tablet and mobile), on multiple addresses at your domain, you'll want our premium email service EmailPro. This is just at £2 (ex VAT) per month, or can be used as part of your monthly £12 Back Deal with Freeola Broadband. A free three-month trial of EmailPro is also available when you purchase any domain.
Beginner's Guide to Websites
Yes, you will need to select a type of web hosting and assign your domain to it. Then you will need to add content or upload your files and publish. The domain is needed so that people can find your site.
Web hosting is basically storage space on a server. You upload your content to the storage space and publish it to make it available for others to view online. Here at Freeola and Get Dotted, we offer 2 types of hosting: VIP hosting and InstantPro (website builder with hosting included). All of our hosting packages are unlimited. This means that there are no limits on the size of your site, the amount of pages and the amount of traffic you can receive. Many other hosting providers may place limits on the size of your site or traffic; with fees or a charge for extra.
Well it depends on what type of site you're looking to build and your capabilities.
Whether you're a beginner or are experienced in creating a site, InstantPro is ideal if you want an easy to use, easy to manage website. Helpful templates and an easy to use interface make it a great choice for users of all experience levels.
If you're an experienced webmaster/designer, and you're confident in uploading your files and managing a site, then VIP is a great choice for you. VIP hosting is compatible with many content management systems, such as WordPress, Joomla and Open Cart.
We've made it really simple to assign the address to your hosting package. Simply log into your MyFreeola account and select My Websites (from under the Web Sites & Hosting tab) - this will list your web hosting services - then simply click the Assign Address button to add your domain.
If you buy a cheap, unlimited Broadband service from Freeola, hosting a site or two is absolutely free! All of our cheap Broadband packages include £12 Back Deal each month, which you can spend on any of our hosting services!
