Do I Need Email Hosting for My Business?

By Peter Wendt

The vast majority of companies conduct much of their business online. Regardless of what type of business you’re in, a strong and secure network is an essential part to the daily operation of your company. Because the majority of communication between employees and clients is done through the email, secured email hosting can greatly benefit your day-to-day operations.

Secured Offsite Email Hosting

Using free online email accounts is not efficient for business purposes. Many of these types of accounts are not secure and all of them are based online. They are often hacked by malicious people and important business information can easily be stolen at any time.

Maintaining onsite hosting for your company’s email applications can be a costly venture that no business owner wants to tackle. Normally, onsite hosting requires additional staff members and expensive equipment that must be monitored and maintained at all times.

In addition to extra servers, firewalls and spam blockers, you may also have to beef up your network to allow for extra traffic. This type of network upgrade will cost you thousands of dollars to complete in addition to days of lost income due to downtime.

Secured offsite email hosting takes care of everything for you. All email accounts are hosted at a secure, offsite location, freeing you from the hassles of hiring extra staff members and installing a large amount of expensive equipment.


In today’s business world, having a copy of every one of your employee’s emails is important. At times, you may need to refer to an email to confirm a conversation that took place at an earlier date.

Backups also come in handy during downtime. Email information that cannot be accessed from your office can be recovered from offsite servers, if necessary.

Offsite email backups are essential for every business. Every single email is saved to a server and can be retrieved at any time.


Onsite hosting, extra staff members, equipment and network upgrades can cost a fortune. Email hosting provides a necessary and affordable alternative to onsite hosting and online email accounts.

Email hosting companies offer a variety of services to each of their clients, including virus and spam protection, redundant backups, firewalls and email account maintenance. Regardless of what type of business you own, email hosting will reduce your overhead expenses, improve the quality of communication between your employees and clients, and prevent any future stress from email downtime and loss of information.

Peter Wendt is a journalist and small business owner living in Austin, Texas. The main form of contact in his office is email. With that, Wendt decided to get professional email hosting from a local IT services company, and was very happy with their services.
