What Is Email Hosting?

As the name implies, email hosting is the service that provides the services of hosting emails, sending emails and storing emails on an email server. Email hosting services let you provide email accounts for a domain and manage them. Unlike normal email services like Yahoo, an email hosting service model is based on premium subscriptions rather being advertisement based.

The service quality provided by an email hosting service depends on the type of email hosting you want. A normal email hosting account is stored on the same server as the website but these provide no extra features or security. Most standard email hosting services are limited to POP3 email which only provide basic virus and spam protection. In comparison, a premium email hosting is based on a dedicated server that has a much higher protection against viruses and spam, since these are hosted using a professional cluster or cloud services and even have advanced features like IMAP email hosting.

What Is The Difference Between Exchange, POP3, & IMAP?

When you’re using an email hosting service there are 3 different types of accounts that you’ll normally see Exchange, POP3, & IMAP. These are Email connection protocols that determine how your email account operates. Knowing how each protocol operates and what features it has can prove very beneficial in choosing the right protocol that suits your needs.

IMAP Email Hosting

IMAP allows you to access your email from wherever you are, from any machine. When you read an email message utilizing IMAP, you aren’t really downloading or saving away it on your computer; rather, you’re reading it from the email server. Accordingly, you can check your email from various devices from any place on the planet: your telephone, a computer, a friend’s computer.

IMAP account messages are only downloaded when you tap on them, and any files or attachments aren’t downloaded along with the message. With IMAP you can check your emails faster and more efficiently than POP3.

POP3 Email Hosting

POP3 downloads email from the mail server and stores it on your machine. It gives you a chance to read your email when you aren’t on the web, yet a few or the greater part of the email downloaded may never again be accessible on the server. This can deliver some confounding outcomes, particularly on the off chance that you check your email from different machines. For instance, email you downloaded on your mobile device (or sent from your mobile device) may not be visible on your PC.

Exchange

The last kind of email in this rundown is the most complex due to its technical details. Exchange is referred to as MAPI, or “Informing Application Programming Interface,” Exchange was created by Microsoft. While the technical details behind Exchange and IMAP are rather complex, the basics are the same. Basically, MAPI is a connection for applications and email customers to connect with Microsoft Exchange servers, and is equipped for IMAP style storing of emails, contacts, timetables, and different features, all tied into email clients and services accessible from your device.
