When you've got a shared hosting plan and you create an e-mail address, you may consider the option to send out and receive emails for granted, but in fact, this is not always the case. Sending emails is not necessarily included in the web hosting packages that service providers feature and an SMTP service is necessary to be capable to do that. The abbreviation signifies Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the piece of software that allows you to send e-mails. If you are using an email application, it creates a connection to the SMTP server. The latter then looks up the DNS data of the domain name, which is a part of the receiving address to find out which mail server deals with its e-mails. After some system information is swapped, your SMTP server delivers the e-mail to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the related mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you are using some sort of contact form as well, so if you use a free of charge hosting package, for instance, it is likely that you won't be able to use this type of form since many no charge website hosting providers don't allow outgoing emails.

SMTP Server in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us you'll be able to make use of our SMTP server as part of the standard set of services that you will get with the package, not as an additional upgrade that you have to pay for. You can send out emails working with any software, webmail or perhaps a script on your website easily. The SMTP server configurations are listed in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and for your convenience we have guides on the way to set up an e-mail account with popular phone and PC e-mail applications. Our guides will help you diagnose any problem you may experience since we have solutions to all of the common issues as well. If you have an e-mail script on your website, getting it to operate is as easy as entering the server name along with your email address. The semi-dedicated servers are suitable for mailing out regular newsletters to clients as the number of outbound emails is significantly higher compared to the regular shared hosting plans.
