Question

Email and website hosting

Hi I am a web design company offering design and hosting services. I am currently hosting all my clients websites and emails with InMotion on a dedicated hosting service plan.

Their email services are terrible. I am always having issues with bounce backs and emails ending up in spam. After months of chats I’ve had it and I’m looking for an alternate solution.

Wondering if you could educate me on your hosting services as it comes to email.

Thank you

Hello,

As you are running websites together with emails, what you could do is to create your own WHM/cPanel server by using this 1-Click installation here:

This gives you and your customers the ability to create email accounts and manage your websites directly via cPanel.

You can pick up the size of the Droplet based on this calculator here:

And you can purchase the cPanel license directly via cPanel.

Alternatively, you could try running your own Mail server with Mail-In-A-Box as described in this tutorial here:

However, in both cases, this might be something that you should consider:

Hope that this helps. Best, Bobby
