A Beginner’s Guide to Dedicated Email Servers

July 2018

If you run your own small business, there’s a good chance you’re currently using a free or shared hosting plan for your email and even web hosting needs. However, as your site grows, so will your hosting needs. Eventually, it will probably be best to make the switch to a dedicated server not just for your web hosting, but company email hosting as well.

There are many reasons to upgrade to a dedicated email server for your business. And with competitive pricing on some of our best hosting plans, now can be a great time to make the switch for your growing business.

Add Security

When you have a dedicated email server, this means that all of the emails that are sent and received by your employees on their company email addresses are contained within a singular web host. Rather than relying on a shared hosting plan or other type of hosting to handle your company website, email, and other hosting needs, you can enjoy the many benefits of having a dedicated server specifically for your company email.

One of the biggest advantages to having a dedicated business email server is that of added security. Because you’re not sharing your hosting with another business or website, you can enjoy inherently stronger email security. This can give you a lot of added peace of mind, especially if your business emails often contain sensitive information, such as customer data. There are also plenty of proactive steps you can take after setting up a dedicated email server to boost security even further.

Control File Attachment Sizes

One common problem many business owners run into when it comes to using shared hosting or other types of email hosting for a growing business is running out of bandwidth. Often times, this is due to large file attachments that can quickly eat up your monthly data allotment. With a dedicated server, you’ll enjoy increased customization that allows you to control the maximum file attachment sizes that are allowed to be sent via your email server. This can help to cut down on unnecessary use of bandwidth while giving you more control over the type of content sent via company email.

Increase Transparency

Last but not least, when you have a dedicated email server for your business, you enjoy greater overall transparency. As a server administrator, you will be able to see (as needed) the types of correspondence that are going on while having a record of company emails that may come in handy down the road.
