Email Domain & Reputation:
Raio always highly recommends using Google or Office360 due to the complexity of spam filtering, encryption, and domain reputation. It is becoming more and more common for domain spoofing, and using a few “free” email addresses allows for that to happen much easier. In addition, using services like microsoft/360 or Google’s G Suite automatically injects a higher level of reputation into your domain. This helps immensely with SEO, spam filtering, etc. As a startup, where you will be sending emails to new people, this is extremely important, and is something that you should not spare the expense on. Simply put: you get what you pay for with email. And in all honesty, this is the primary reason Raio Creative does not do email hosting.
Using a mail service like Google and Microsoft is going to give you a lot more flexibility with digital marketing, SEO, emailing, etc. These companies are already so vast that they already have all of the best integrations. Tools like Mailchimp, Constant Contact, and others will be very important for your success of your business.
Need Hosting? Raio Can Help
Raio Creative provides a price match (or even better if it helps) hosting service for our clients. To accomplish this, we utilize our own infrastructure that’s already built into the sites we create, as well as Amazon Web Services (or AWS ). There’s also no need to worry about reliability, as we do auto-back ups regularly and everything we make is totally transferable. In addition, we’re able to manage all the DNS email domain stuff for you; all you have to do is sign up and pay for the Google or Microsoft service and provide us with the information when it asks to set up the domain.
Thats it. Easy peasy.
