With its ubiquitous format and address, the email is far from dying. With larger and larger storage space, an email account is indispensable as an archive for all business communications, bank statements, tax returns, and more.
What’s different about business email hosting? It has a domain that is of the form [email protected], instead of ending with the generic gmail.com, aol.com, or msn.com. The element of your identity is ingrained in the fact that this address is linked to your domain name (website name). This gives your communications a more professional look.
Also, business email hosting allows the use of POP and newer IMAP protocols that will enable you to use Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or Apple Mail as an email client. This lets you store email on local drives and access them even when there is no internet connection available.
