Mail aliases

When you register a Yandex account, you receive the following email addresses:

  • primary address in your country's domain, for example
  • additional addresses:
    • In country domains: ru (Russia), by (Belarus), kz (Kazakhstan).
    • in the domain
Note. The list of additional addresses depends on the country specified in your Yandex ID.

These addresses are considered aliases of your primary email address.

Aliases are required to maintain the uniqueness of your username.

Note. If your username includes a period (e.g. alice.the.girl), you automatically receive an alias like alice-the-girl in addition to your domain aliases.

You can also use your phone number as an alias.

Exclusive email address

If you have a Yandex 360 Premium subscription, you can get an exclusive email address. It's easy to remember and nice to share. For example, you can have an address like or

When you get an exclusive address, it becomes an alias of your main Yandex mail address. Emails will be sent from the new address by default.

If your Yandex 360 Premium ends, you can still use the exclusive address for another 30 days, so you have time to renew your subscription. After 30 days, your exclusive address will be disabled.

So far, you can only get an exclusive email address in the .ru domain zone.

Yandex provides the domain only for your email address. You can't place a separate website on the domain, connect other email addresses to it, or use it as an organization's domain. The domain will be assigned to your mailbox for the entire duration of your Yandex 360 Premium subscription or until you deactivate your exclusive email address. That means no one will be able to connect the same domain while you are using this exclusive email address.

Connecting corporate mail on the domain is available only in Yandex 360 for Business. Read more about the terms of use of an exclusive email address in legal documents.
