E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our cloud web hosting plans, will allow you to forward any email address in the account to an alternative one easily. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or at any time afterwards in case you decide that you need this function. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you prefer a copy of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll avoid the probability to lose a message if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's temporarily inaccessible. This option can be activated and disabled any time, and if you use email messages for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, as no data of the email messages will be maintained on the server in case the option is not active. If you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes only a mouse click to deactivate it.

If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will need just a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails created on our server to a third-party address. Inside the same section you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming emails are sent. You can enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also decide whether a backup of the e-mails should be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it is useful because you will have a backup copy of the emails on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they've got just a short-term problem, you risk losing e-mails as once our server gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing at all will be stored on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be maintained.
