Email Hosting: What is Email Hosting and What’s The Benefits?

As a business owner, you should be familiar with email hosting – a system that allows you to manage email servers. For example, if you’re emailing from or to someone with a domain name in their email address, they have an email hosting service i.e.

Typically the web hosting company who support your domain name will also provide you with an email hosting service. However, there are some issues that are associated with using this type of hosting.

Firstly, your web hosting provider may give you a POP3 email service. This means you can only use one computer to check your device (no other devices like mobile phones or tablets) and your emails will be stored on the computer you are using. This means all the sent emails are stored with your local PC rather than a mail server.

A web hosting provider’s email server will also give you basic antivirus protection. It is good that, to some degree, they are protecting your emails from hacking and corruption. However, other email hosting providers will offer you a more intensive and structured virus prevention system.

Finally, considering their expertise in the industry lie within web hosting, it’s no wonder most web hosting providers give a basic and minimal email hosting service. With a web provider you will be given a bog standard email server and not told much about how to use it.
