How can we help?
Yes, WordPress Hosting includes email accounts.
Hosted.com has split email hosting and WordPress Hosting onto separate server environments to ensure that our WordPress Hosting remains as SuperFast as possible. The reason for the split is because emails tend to use a significant amount of server resources which would have affected WordPress performance.
Feel free to contact our Sales Team if you need further clarification.
WordPress is the world’s premium open resource Content Management System, originally developed for blog websites, it now encompasses all types of websites, from forums through to e-commerce online stores.
WordPress Email Accounts
When you opt for WordPress Hosting from Hosted.com, you will receive email accounts associated with your domain.
This means that you can create custom email addresses using your domain name e.g., email@example.com or contact@yoursitecom.
Bear in mind that the email accounts included in your WordPress Hosting Plan will be hosted on the same server as your website.
Since both your website and email services are on the same server, they utilize shared resources. This means that the hosting plan’s allocated capacity for bandwidth and disk space is distributed between your website and email.
There are two important things to note. First, your email traffic contributes to your overall resource usage. This includes your monthly bandwidth, the data transferred to and from your website and email. IN other words, all emails sent or received from your email address will consume a portion of your monthly bandwidth.
Second, the disk space allocated to your account stores your website files along with the email messages in your inbox and sent folder. As you accumulate emails, they occupy space on the server alongside your website content, so remember to archive your emails every so often to free up resources when required.
Managing your emails is important to ensure they don’t take up too much disk space or eat up too much bandwidth, which could affect the loading speeds of your website.
Additional Email Storage
As the business grows and additional email accounts are required, you may find that you need to look at additional resources. Hosted.com offers Email Hosting packages to accommodate the increase at minimal cost Alternatively, you can look at signing up for a separate Email Hosting package, which will be linked to your account and accommodate the additional storage without impacting on the WordPress website’s current storage and bandwidth resources.
