Email hosting

You can get email hosting either by using a dedicated email hosting service, like Fastmail, Mailbox, ProtonMail, Google Workspace, Zoho Mail or Hey which charge per user (per email address) or, if you need more email addresses, it's cheaper to get a shared hosting account which also includes unlimited free email addresses for your domain name.

These are the best dedicated email hosting services:

Email addresses

You can either use your own domain name (except on the Basic plan) and create something@yourdomain.com or if you don't have your own domain you can use @fastmail.com or over a hundred other choices that Fastmail offers.

You can use additional addresses (called aliases) for free with your Fastmail account. For example you can create sales@yourdomain.com and info@yourdomain.com that deliver to your main you@yourdomain.com Inbox. And you can also set it up so that when you send an email it shows that you've sent it from those aliases.

You can also use a catchall (or a wildcard) alias that allows you to receive all mail to any address at your domain name to the same account.

Access

You can use Fastmail from your browser, by using your favorite email client like Outlook, Thunderbird or Mac Mail, or you can use Fastmail iOS or Android apps.
