More and more SMBs are moving towards email hosting providers over running an in-house email server. And why not, when the decision can bring a complete array of benefits with it! Here, take a look at some of the leading benefits making business email hosting an ideal choice for SMBs.
While the actual value of downtime is difficult to quantify, moving from an internally managed system to a business email hosting environment can decrease downtime and its associated costs in three ways.
- A solution provider typically includes some type of redundancy as a standard feature of its email service offerings, either through clustering, backup servers, geographic redundancy or distribution, redundant networks and power supplies, and/or onsite hardware parts and technicians. This is a significant improvement for most companies.
- Email hosting environments are engineered carefully for availability and monitored continually and proactively for potential problems. Those problems that do arise can be immediately detected and resolved with the help of the latest sophisticated tools and experienced staff that has seen these types of problems in other environments.
- Unlike an internal IT department, a service provider will use service level agreements to guarantee of system availability, usually 99.5% or higher.

An email hosting solution provides additional security that is inherently a part of the solution and is usually clubbed with features like dedicated firewalls, email virus protection, spam filtering, enhanced monitoring, backup, and disaster recovery.
