HostPapa has two tiers on offer for their hosted email service.
If you have a web hosting account with HostPapa, you get a set number of emails included in your plan. (For more information on HostPapa’s pricing plans, check out this article.)
This is a great bonus feature as even some of the best web hosting services on the market charge extra for email.
Here’s what you need to know about both:
The Basic email plan is great for you if you are a solopreneur or have a small team. It includes a small amount of email storage and reliable, fast email service on desktop devices. Here are the pros and cons:
The Advanced plan is a step up from the basics but is still only best for smaller teams. We’re most impressed by the anti-spam filters and protection from phishing scams. This is a huge plus as you get advanced protection for all your email inboxes. You get a little more flexibility with the syncs across devices too. Let’s talk about pros and cons:
From the cPanel, you can also manage the email addresses from your team and create additional emails in no time.
It’s worth mentioning that if you set up your email through your own server, it’s not good for large email marketing campaigns.
You also have a limited amount of sending capacity at just 35MB per email for attachments. That’s not a huge amount of storage for professionals that send a high volume of emails or with large attachments.
So how do you set up your professional email account through HostPapa? Simple! Head to the cPanel.
Click email accounts and create a new one from there. There’s a form you need to complete to make the email but it takes less than 2 minutes to set up.
Depending on the pricing plan you have, you can create anywhere from 10 to hundreds of email accounts using your domain.
Best of all, if you get stuck creating new email addresses, you can always contact the PapaSquad customer service team for help.
So what if you don’t want to host your email account on your own server? It makes perfect sense if you want to do bigger things with your email account, like email marketing campaigns and exchanging larger attachments.
HostPapa has got you still! Through HostPapa you can sign up to Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace.
Let’s quickly compare the two:
The Microsoft suite is the original business class of tools: email, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You get an affordable business email with a huge amount of storage. The tools are easy to use and perfect for small business owners.
Google Workspace is great because you can use the Gmail interface to manage your professional email address. The familiarity alone makes it a huge plus. But it is more limited than Microsoft when it comes to storage. Here are the pros and cons to consider:
Before I sign off, what’s the point of having a domain-hosted email address instead of a free account with Gmail?
Here are some quickfire reasons to convince you:
Email marketing is one of the most effective ways to market your business. Yes – even in 2023! If you want to be able to send email campaigns, you need a domain-hosted email account.
If you have a small business and send under 500 emails a day, HostPapa offers a great email service that will suit your basic needs. Beyond just email, you can build your own website, get managed hosting support and get access to industry leading security features with HostPapa.
