Last updated: July 5, 2018

In your HubSpot account, you can turn on a setting to automatically create and associate companies with contacts based on contact email address and company domain. 

When this feature is enabled, HubSpot will try to match each contact's email addresses to a company's Company Domain Name property and associate the two records If a company does not exist in your account to match the contact's email domain, HubSpot will automatically create a company record and populate it with information from our databaseIf the contact has a freemail email account (gmail.com, yahoo.com, etc.), HubSpot will also look at the contact's Website URL property to attempt to match the contact with a company's domain name.

Please note: turning this setting on will associate any current contacts with companies as well as any newly added contacts. This will not update or sync company property values to contact properties (i.e. Company Name).

  • In your HubSpot account, click the settings icon settings in the main navigation bar.
  • Click Contacts & Companies in the left sidebar menu, the click the Companies tab.
  • Click to toggle the Automatically create and associate companies with contacts switch on.
  • If you'd like HubSpot to review your existing contacts and create new company records and associations based on your contacts' email addresses, click Yes in the dialog box. 

HubSpot will begin creating company records and associating contacts based on email addresses of your existing contacts and will continue to do so for new contacts as you add them to your account. Please give this process some time to run.
