FAQs

What is email Hosting?

Email hosting services provide and operate servers that are leased to users, (usually businesses), for their email needs. These services are normally premium services which offer advanced email solutions that differ from the usual free web mail options like Gmail and Yahoo. Email hosting providers operate infrastructures that can handle the demands of high email traffic from big enterprises or small-to-medium sized businesses.

Can I host my own email?

It is possible to host your own emails but if you’re a small-to-medium sized business, it is recommended that you buy an email hosting plan. This is because setting up and maintaining your own email server requires serious investment in IT and a whole department dedicated to it which may drag the resources you need to manage your business.

How does email hosting work?

Email hosting involves using your domain name for your emails. This means that your email address should look like xxxx@yourdomainname.com instead of xxxx@gmail.com. The email hosting provider is responsible for providing spam and virus protection, backup service, as well as other advanced solutions to keep your email running. Most web hosting providers offer email hosting as part of the entire hosting package.

Can't I just use free email hosting?

If you’re operating a business, it’s never recommended that you select free webmail services like Google and Yahoo, as your customers and other industry players will not take you seriously. Although some email hosting plans with your domain name come free of charge with web hosting, you may need a premium plan if you want:

a)       Better authentication schemes and higher security

b)      Higher server package that can deal with high-traffic

What benefits does email hosting give me?

Professional email hosting comes with benefits that cannot be enjoyed through free web mail services. Some of these benefits include:

-          Virus and spam filtering

-          Adequate storage space

-          Shared address book

-          Secure POP3 and IMAP access

-          Encrypted web mail access

-          Reliable backup service

-          Brand image enhancement

-          Redundancy and scalability

How do I set up my email?

We have a number of step-by-step email setup guides for different programmes and devices. Visit our Knowledge Hub here.

What do you mean by Premium Spam Protection?

Discount Domains provides comprehensive email security protection from Spam, Viruses, Trojans, Phishing and unwanted content.

  • Two Anti-Virus engines including ClamAV and Kaspersky Labs.
  • Multi layered Anti-Spam analyses resulting in 98% plus Spam detection.
  • Less than 0.03% False Positive Rate.
  • Content Filtering.
How do I use domain name for business email?

Through your web hosting, you can handle your business email in different ways. You can set up your email on an exchange server if you’re running a windows hosting account, use your control panel to set up different IMAP email addresses or run your email through Google Apps which will require you to tweak your DNSMX record.

What is ActiveSync?

ActiveSync is the only synchronisation method that uses direct push technology to ensure changes in email, calendars, contacts and collaboration items are automatically recorded on the mail server and the smart device in real-time. Synchronising your Discount Domains Mail with smart devices is quick, easy and automatic with ActiveSync. ActiveSync can be purchased as an add-on product once you have purchased a product bundle. AcrtiveSync costs $10 per mailbox /yr.
