Email hosting is an online hosting service that provides standard email and related services on email servers. Email hosting services are offered at a cost with premium features and differ from advertisement-supported free webmail services in quality and spam protection. Hosting companies will often offer one or more email accounts with the purchase of website hosting. However, it can also be purchased as a separate service for anyone with a domain.

You may also want to check out the difference between an alias and user email address.
When creating a new email address you will have the option of creating an alias or email user.
- Email User is a full email account, it has its own inbox that you can connect a mail client to, and can send and receive emails. When setting up an email this is the one you will want to use.
- Email Alias allows you to receive email on an address@yourdomain and have it forwarded to an existing email address. An email alias doesn’t have its own inbox that you can configure an email program with and you can’t send email from it. Email Aliases are great for making your organisation appear more professional. You can have several aliases, such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org etc all pointing to the one inbox (Email User)
The eCompanies email hosting service allows you to use either POP or IMAP in your mail client
- Connecting your mail client via POP (Post office Protocol) means it will download a copy of emails from the server and keep them on your local storage. This allows you to view emails on your computer/device while not connected to the internet, as all the files have been downloaded. Most mail clients will typically delete email on the server after downloading to save space. If you have only check mail from one computer POP can be a good way to go
- Connecting via IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) means you do everything on the mail server. When you delete/send/move emails via IMAP it is all happening on the email server. This means if you use several devices to check email, and they’re all connected via IMAP, then they will all see the same thing. The drawback is that it can be slow and it will use up space on the server, meaning you might run out of space.
