What is Email Hosting and Why Use It?
An email hosting service is a company that manages and maintains an email server. Signing up for an email hosting service will provide you with an email hosting server. To use an email service, all you need is a domain name. To manage, send, and maintain your email addresses, you can use an email hosting server.
Most major eCommerce stores have in-house email servers to ensure that emails are sent on time to their intended recipients. Small businesses, on the other hand, rely on email hosting services from companies including Google, Zoho, Rackspace, and others.
Most website hosting companies have recently begun to provide email hosting servers as an add-on to their standard services, such as shared, dedicated, and cloud hosting. One of them is Cloudways. It provides managed cloud storage services as well as a Rackspace email hosting solution.
Email Service With Shared Web Hosting:
A shared hosting service may provide this form of email service. Owing to email server limitations, you can't use it to send or receive bulk emails.
Email Hosting by a Third-Party:
The majority of digital companies tend to use email hosting services provided by third parties. These are flexible, user-friendly email servers with excellent customer service. Keep in mind that you will have to pay for email hosting separately. As a result, the cost would be higher than if you got shared web hosting with an email service.
Email Servers that are Self-Hosted:
These are complex, reliable email servers that necessitate technological skills on the part of the team that manages them. These servers are dependable, and you can easily send, receive, and manage emails.
Why Should Email Be Hosted on a Different Server?
Many experts advise that email should not be hosted on the same server as the web files (and database) for your company's websites. This is a common blunder since many companies consider a separate email server to be an “unavoidable” business cost, so they host the email on the same server. When tragedy hits and the server goes down for whatever reason, the company is unable to contact its suppliers because the email system is also down.
Hosting the email is a poor idea from a technological standpoint. Web hosting and email hosting are two very different components that need very different resources. Hosting them on the same server could result in resource competition, which could slow down the application's output.
Finally, there's the thorny issue of backing. While the provider's support staff may be well-versed in coping with web hosting issues, their understanding of email hosting issues may be shaky.
