WA Email Manager - A New Platform is Born

Last Update: Jul 5, 2012

Hi Everyone,

WA hosted websites now have a brand new way to manage email accounts. It’s fast, it’s easy and it will save you a ton of time as your email management is all in one place. I’d like to take this opportunity to outline the WA Email Manager tab within your Websites dashboard.

Managing email account is now simple as there is no reason to log into the Plesk control panel to awkwardly setup your email. Now right within WA you can:
  • Manage Email Mailboxes
  • Manage Email Forwards
  • Access Web Mail


This is just the Start!

We have long had the plan of building our own hosting control panel that removes all of the technical jargon and clunky interfaces associated with other hosting companies who use Control Panels like Plesk or Cpanel. Control panels complicate simple tasks that should be quick and easy. For someone just learning about web hosting, learning how to navigate through a control panel is the last thing you want to do. At WA, Kyle and I would rather see you spending your time working on your website, researching keywords, or writing an article that will generate traffic.

At WA hosting you can already add a domain in just a few seconds, now you can manage email accounts for these domains. You can build a WordPress website in literally 60 seconds or less using our website builder WordPress Express. You have full access to your website file system using FTP (File Transfer Protocol) programs. You can upload, download, modify files, delete files, or set permissions on files using FTP.

The plesk has been on the chopping block for too long now and due to security vulnerabilities we found in plesk while fixing some websites that were hacked on the WA hosting network. This has given us the incentive to remove plesk for good and replace it with something better.


The Goal - Simplification

Simplifying your experience with Internet marketing is our Goal. We are always working to provide you with the easiest path to success. Along this path there are typically many technical things that you will encounter. Our goal is to completely remove the need to have a technical understanding. Owning a website is something that everyone needs and we are working to continue making this as easy as possible.

Currently there is one step that is the single most frequent road bump for someone just getting started. This is referred to as "DNS" settings. When a domain is purchased you need to tell that domain where the website actually resides. Changing your domain’s nameservers tells the browser where to look for your website files. When you use WA hosting you point your domain to our servers so that your website will show up. This can take up to 24 hours to change.

What if you didn’t have to wait 24 hours? What if you didn’t have to change your Domain Name Settings? We’ve got an answer for this to further simplify the WA hosting experience.

Click a single button and have a custom website ready for content...how does that sound? This is where WA hosting is headed.


Let’s not forget WordPress Express



While we’re on the subject of Simplification I wanted to talk about a system that is integrated right into WA hosting. Any time you choose to "Create a New Website" here at WA you’re accessing our WordPress express website builder. WordPress Express has single handedly carved a path to success for so many people. I’m betting that some of you reading this have never even heard about "WordPress Express". This is because the system is so integrated into WA that it just becomes the "website builder". Well, we’re bringing back the WordPress express branding and we’re going to be continually beefing up the system that has helped tens of thousands of WA members build their first, second, or 100’th website :)

---------------

Today I have introduced the WA Email Manager,outlined the awesome tool set that is already available, and indicated the direction that WA hosting is headed.

Success is something that can be simplified - although we may never create a "single-click" success/income generator, we’re going to do our best to get as close as we can :)

Love it! I have been waiting to add my emails to my new website and it was done much easier than before. Great job. Looking forward to what is next.

wow that's a great work guyz

WA keeps getting Better and Better! Can't wait to use this. Many Thanks!

Glad you like Meredith! I've seen a ton of activity in setting up email addresses today for WA hosted domains, much more than I've seen before. Moving in the right direction! Lots to come in regards to WA hosting, we're just getting started.

Great Service to the community that depends on you two! Amazing!

I am glad this is happening. I have not had any reliable mail on my site yet, this is a blessing. thanks guys!

It works great Carson, mail issues are resolved!

Great Shawn, I was just going to contact you about this. Keep me in the loop and let me know if you run into any other issues with email.

Carson, still cannot log in sfter 10 min. there is a error msg.at bottom of screen?

Give me a minute and I'll try from my side.

I've sent you a PM to get some more info about your email address.

Oh I'm soooo happy ... lol! Thanks for being true to your timescale guys - good stuff!

It took us longer than expected because we had some other updates that we wanted to release too! Enjoy :)

Carson Iam having trouble logging in to email ,it just sets there. I sent a test to see if I set it up right, maybe not ?

The first time you log into your email account it can take 30 seconds to 1 minute.. this is something that we will try to improve but a lot is going on in the background when you log in for the first time. After the initial login that takes this long, it will open instantly for every other time.

You did not do anything wrong :)

Hey that's fantastic! I love it. Now I am going to go check it out. Thanks Kyle and Carsonand WA for making things easier for us. :)

Glad you like! If Kyle and I can remove all those difficult aspects of Internet marketing, it's going to allow everyone to focus on the marketing, and not the technical stuff.

Thanks Kyle & Carson!!! This is going to make things so much easier here!

Setting up email accounts has been one of those road blocks that people hit and consistently have trouble with. The new email manager here at WA will remove this issue entirely. Plesk, Cpanel, or any other web hosting control panel make the simple things seem really difficult. We'll make things easier! Glad you like.
