Advantages of Business Grade Email Hosting

There are a few reasons why we recommend separating email hosting from website hosting:

  1. Security: If both email and website are hosted on the same server and a security breach occurs on the website, the email accounts could also be compromised. Separating email hosting from web hosting adds an extra layer of security.
  2. Performance: If email and website are hosted on the same server and there is a sudden spike in traffic to the website, it could affect the performance of the email service. Separating the two ensures that one service doesn't affect the other.
  3. Flexibility: Separating email hosting from web hosting gives you more flexibility in terms of service providers. You can choose the best email service provider for your needs and not be limited by the hosting provider's email service.
  4. Storage: Email storage can take up a significant amount of space on a server, especially with larger email attachments. Separating email hosting from web hosting allows you to have more control over the storage capacity and better manage the resources on your server. It also allows you to easily scale your email hosting plan as your needs grow.
