Unparalleled Benefits of G Suite
While all those features above are great, now it’s time to dive into some of the real benefits of using G Suite for your business.
Hosting Email With Third-Party Is Always Recommended
It’s never recommended to host your email with the same company you use for WordPress hosting. That’s why we don’t and will never offer email hosting to our clients (other than G Suite). We’ll give you a quick summary of why below:
- If you use your host, you’re tied to IP addresses that your host has configured for outgoing email. If something goes wrong with that, such as a client suddenly spamming, there is a chance the IP address could get blacklisted for spam. Then you’re suddenly left hanging with no control.
- One of the biggest downfalls to relying on your WordPress host for emails is deliverability issues. With G Suite, you can authenticate outbound mail using DKIM and SPF records which can positively impact your spam rating.
- Sending emails via your WordPress host could potentially result in server resources issues. By offloading email to a third-party, especially G Suite, you’ll never have to worry about this.
- Spreading services across multiple providers is always a good thing. We always recommend separating DNS (we include Amazon Route 53 DNS for all clients), WordPress hosting, and email. This way if anything goes wrong with one, your email is always flowing. Most likely your DNS will still route regardless, but by using multiple providers you can guarantee this.
So as you can see, going with a third-party for email hosting is actually beneficial to your business.
