The Importance of Good Email Hosting

Ensuring that your business has the best email hosting available is important not only for security, but also for the development of your company. This is something we take into account here at PBS Creative when providing advanced hosting for our clients.

Email Hosting for Businesses

There are many ways in which good email hosting packages can be provided for businesses but essentially each company will have a different need. However, every company’s email hosting should ensure security and functionality.

The basic purpose of email is to, obviously send and receive it! But deliverability can be hindered by not having the correct systems implemented. To ensure your business has the best chance of sending and receiving email (that is also secure), SPF, DKIM and DMARC systems should be implemented.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF)

SPF is an email authentication system that can identify and prevent spam by detecting whether a message has been sent from your domain by an authorised mailer server. Essentially, SPF prevents the risk of outgoing message that contain spam.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

DKIM is slightly different to SPF in that it uses a digital signature that allows a company to take responsibility for the message. The digital signature is validated through a company’s Domain Name System (DNS) record. The DKIM system prevents the risk of incoming messages that contain spam.

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting Conformance (DMARC)

DMARC is a record which is designed to offer receivers more control in deciding the integrity of an email through domain reputations. It can only be put into place if your sending domain has the SPF and DKIM systems published. DMARC offers many benefits including authentication reporting and phishing reduction.

Benefits of good email hosting includes:

  • Security
  • Storage space
  • Shared contact lists
  • Spam and virus filter
