What Does Email Hosting Mean?

Email hosting is a service in which a hosting provider rents out email servers to its users. It allows you to use your custom domain as your email address, rather than a generic domain such as gmail.com or hotmail.com.

Free mail hosting services such as Google are suitable for private use by individuals, but they may not be appropriate for commercial or professional use.

Email is usually, but not always, bundled together in a package that includes web and domain hosting. However, business email hosting is a stand-alone service that lets you set up a custom email address tailored to your business. It’s possible to have email hosting on its own with no attached website, so you can use other providers to get the services you need (e.g. domain hosting).  

Email is central to the day-to-day functioning of your business. You need a way to talk to customers and potential clients, give out tasks to employees, and send out supply orders, just to name a few.  

A reliable email hosting service is absolutely essential. 

What is the Difference Between Web Hosting and Domain Hosting?

The terms web hosting, domain hosting and email hosting are often used interchangeably since they are commonly bundled together in the same package, but each is its own separate service. 

  • Domain Hosting: Domain hosting allows you to store your website’s domain and facilitate its registration in the DNS. Think of domain hosting as owning the plot of land that you eventually build your house on.
  • Web Hosting: Web hosting provides server space, memory and bandwidth for your website’s text, images and videos live on the Internet. It creates a space to display your website. Think of web hosting as building a house on the plot of land you purchased. A domain is the land, and a website is the house you build there that contains furniture, electricity, plumbing and all your worldly possessions.
  • Email Hosting: Email hosting stores all your emails and their associated files – attachments, downloads, links etc. – onto an associated server. The server that hosts your email can be the same server that hosts your website content. It can also be another host or two different servers on the same hosting company. If a domain is a deed to your land, and a website is your house, then your email host is your mailing address and mailbox. 

Benefits Of Having An Email Address Associated With Your Domain

There are several reasons why having your custom email address on a private hosting service benefits you as a business owner. They include:

  • Added professionalism: Having an email address that fits your business’ name gives it added legitimacy. Having a generic @gmail.com address may sometimes come across as unprofessional.
  • Added security: When you upgrade to a premium paid email hosting service, you’re also paying for protection from hackers, viruses and other threats that your business harm. If you do experience a security breach, your hosting provider will be there to assist you.
  • Maintenance and support: Hosting your custom email in-house means that if you run into any problems, you’re on your own. A hosting service has experts there to troubleshoot with you.  They can also customize your email hosting and add features as your business scales. 

Advantages of Premium Email Hosting with EnCirca

Email hosting is a must-have for any modern business, but there are a lot of things to look out for when choosing a provider.

You need a host that will add credibility to your business, protect you from cybersecurity threats and simplify your life. EnCirca premium email hosting gives you all of that and more.

Here are some of the benefits of EnCirca email hosting.

POP3 and IMAP Compatibility

EnCirca offers you both POP3 and IMAP protocols with your email server.

IMAP is useful when you need to access your email on more than one device. POP3 downloads your messages rather than leaving them on the server, which is good if you need to access email offline or plan to just use one device and have a high volume of emails.

Many free email applications will offer you just one or the other. When you host your email on EnCirca, you get the best of both worlds.

Catch-All/Forwarding

Do you have an easily misspelled, rare or common name?  Maybe your business name is similar to a competitor’s or another business in a different niche? Catch-all and forwarding addresses are useful for these circumstances.

A catch-all and forwarding address will take any misspelled email addresses intended for you and forward them to you at your proper address.

Misspelled email addresses can cost you valuable leads and sales. That’s why 30% of all B2B business email servers are catchall servers.

Spam Filtering

Spam emails are as ubiquitous as viral memes or videos – except no one wants spam in their inbox.

Neither does anyone, including you. You don’t want your business emails inundated with promotional offers, social media noise, unwanted solicitations, and most especially harmful software.

An estimated 14.5 billion spam emails are sent every single day. A 2018 study showed that somewhere around 45% of all emails – nearly half of all email content -are spam. No one has the time or energy to sort through all that junk mail.

As an entrepreneur, your time is valuable and your resources are limited. You can’t afford to focus on sorting  through your inbox and separating the junk from the valuable communications.

Let us do the hard work of filtering out your spam emails.

EnCirca Email Hosting Gives You Extra Security

EnCirca is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and supports every top-level domain on the Internet. ICANN trusts us for a reason. When you register for one of our email hosting packages, we offer you a suite of cybersecurity protections to keep you and your business safe.

DMARC Email Authentication

Emails are vulnerable to cyberattacks by bad actors like hackers and spammers. Spoofing, phishing and DDoS attacks are notorious for compromising businesses’ financial security or even shutting them down.

Achieving Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) is one of the best things you can do to prevent these and other potentially catastrophic threats. DMARC provides domain owners with added control and the ability to block domain-based spoofing.

However, DMARC is also very complicated to enable and prohibitively expensive for most businesses. EnCirca is a cost-effective DMARC email authentication service that helps smaller organizations secure their website. Both you and your clients will have the relief and peace of mind of a secure web experience.

Trademark Protection

The Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) was created by ICANN as a way for brands to protect their trademarks online. It also covers new top-level domains (TLDs). TMCH is the body that oversees Sunrise Periods – periods of time during which you can submit your claim for your domain name before it becomes acquired by another party.

EnCirca provides you with a comprehensive service to protect your trademarks and manage them during Sunrise Periods. These include:

  • Pre-validation: EnCirca searches through trademark databases to make sure your trademarks are still valid.
  • Document preparation and submission: We’ll make sure your documents are all in order and properly submitted.
  • Sunrise Tokens and alerts: We’ll notify you when Sunrise periods are scheduled on your domain and manage your Sunrise Tokens on your behalf.
  • Claims notices: EnCirca will automatically alert you when your trademark has a claim notice.

DNS and Website Hosting

EnCirca’s DNS service protects your email from DDoS attacks. We also provide you with enhanced security and monitoring to help prevent email fraud.

Domain Portfolio Management

Have more than one domain registered? Not a problem. EnCirca will also help you consolidate your domains. We support every TLD extension registered in ICANN, as well as all country-code TLDs (ccTLDs).
