Email hosting service providers store emails and other content on a remote server. They’re the ones that make it possible for you to set up email accounts for your employees. You’ll find many options, but you need to consider factors including your industry, current IT processes and needs, employee number and the hosting service’s storage capacity, security features, discounts and mobile responsiveness.
