When using your web hosting package with Woktron Web Hosting you have the ability to create unlimited email addresses. If your domain is "your-domain.com" you could have many different email accounts such as "firstname.lastname@example.org", "email@example.com", and many more. Anytime you want to create a new email address you can do so in DirectAdmin.
