Email hosting is a Web or Internet hosting service which rents out and operates email servers. Email hosting services are usually premium services which differ from the typical free webmail sites such as Yahoo and Google. These hosting providers cater to more demanding users like high-email-traffic small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that require their own domain name in order to distinguish them more. The typical hosted business email address is in the format of [email protected]. Larger enterprises usually host their own email servers and forgo email hosting services.


Email Hosting: While it's usually included with a web hosting plan, email hosting is a separate service that allows you to set up a custom email address and use it to send and receive emails. The email account name will match your website, for instance, [email protected]. Separate email hosting is what some might refer to as "professional email" because of the extra features it provides. Apart from the personalized domain name, you may get additional storage space, faster email servers, advanced spam filters, and mail rules, to name a few.
