Email Hosting: Description and Information

© AffiliateSeeking - This article is not allowed to be re-published but can be linked to.

One type of Internet hosting service is email hosting. This form of hosting service handles email servers.

Email hosting is different from that of free email due to the fact that free emails or webmails are provided at no cost since all expenses are shouldered by the income generated from advertising companies that support the host, while email hosting on the other hand mostly provides exclusive email space and services to their clients at a cost.

Email providers, like a lot of web-mail sites usually offer their services to casual email users who create their account for personal use, or in some cases owners or managers of small and medium size businesses. These are the type of email users who mostly don't want - for different reasons - to be responsible for the administration of their email servers.

Email hosting on the other hand comes with a lot of extra features that free email providers do not offer. Email Hosting clients are provided with numerous accounts, customized configuration, the benefit of having their own domain name and of course, their premium email.

Email hosting providers usually design their services to the needs of their clients. That's the reason why the services and features email hosting providers offer vary. Dedicated email platforms that are customized to suit the needs of the clients are where providers host their exclusive email solutions.

Webmail software such as Squirrelmail or Horde are usually the applications that a lot of web hosting companies base their email and webmail from. These programs are mostly open source so there are different variations that providers can choose from, depending on their client base. These types of email are mostly composed of basic POP3 based email, all of which are standardized.

Not every email hosting provider grant their clients with web hosting services, but almost every web hosting provider offer their clients email services, although most are just basic and standard email applications.

Some of the services and features that email hosting providers offer to their clients include the following; message boards, built in search function for their clients' website, premium and scalable email services that are capable of meeting the needs of corporations of all sizes and web hosting companies, full management and integration of web based email and numerous other services.

As already mentioned earlier, some of these features come at a cost while some are provided free. Almost all free email hosting includes advertisements that are the main source of the email hosting providers' income. Premium email services are paid services but comes with a lot of useful features.
