E-mail hosting is an email service which allows businesses to use their domain name to create branded email accounts like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Email Hosting companies run only email services on their servers. The fact that there are no other services hogging the same resources so improves reliability.
How Does Email Hosting Work?
To send or receive emails, you need an email server (also called “mail server”). The term Email Server refers to two different aspects of email hosting, the email server can refer to the hardware server on which emails are handled in a dedicated email server scenario. This server also refers to the software used on the server to handle emails, whether a dedicated email server is used or emails are handled by a server performing another function like web server.
The email server is responsible for receiving, relaying or distributing emails. Each mail server on the Internet has a unique location, when you send an email to your friend Alice, “DNS servers” around the world inform webmail services and email servers where they should forward emails for the particular email domain Alice uses (“email@example.com”).
