If you have a cloud hosting account and you set up an e-mail address, you might consider the option to send and receive messages for granted, but in fact, this isn't always true. Sending emails is not always a part of the web hosting plans that service providers have and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The abbreviation stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the set of scripts that permits you to send emails. If you are using an e-mail application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then queries the DNS records of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out what mail server handles its emails. After system information is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the message to the remote IMAP or POP server and the email is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is required if you are using some sort of contact page form too, so if you work with a free of charge hosting package, as an example, it is likely that you won't have the ability to use this type of form as many free of charge hosting companies do not allow outgoing emails.

SMTP Server in Cloud Hosting

The SMTP service is available with our plans by default, and not on demand or perhaps as an optional paid add-on. You will be able to send out emails from everywhere using our webmail or perhaps an email app that you choose. The SMTP server also makes it possible to implement contact forms on your web sites simply by adding the server name and your email in the form code, so you will not have to do anything whatsoever more technical than that to get a PHP mail form to work. You will find the needed SMTP settings in the Emails area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel together with in-depth help articles for well-known desktop and mobile phone email clients that will allow you to repair any issue if you aren't able to send emails for reasons unknown.
