Using Zoho Mail for your own domain provides quite a few benefits such as spam filters, calendar options, being able to share your mail via social media and more. In this tutorial, I'll quickly teach you how to install Zoho Mail yourself. Zoho Mail works with Cpanel as well as all Hosting providers that use Cpanel such as Go-Daddy and also WHMCS which is a lesser known program for managing invoices.
