Domain Email Service
Email configuration is something most people get wrong.
When domain email configuration isn’t done right, it causes problems. Problems with deliverability, did you want to reach your customer’s inbox? Not today.
But not only can email configuration cause problems with deliverability but it can also cause security problems for your website.
Do you have a website firewall like Cloudflare? Cloudflare is awesome but did you know that if your domain’s email is on the same server as your website, people can bypass Cloudflare’s firewall and get access directly to your web server?
Because of this and some other reasons, Iridium Hosting doesn’t provide email. That means your WordPress site will require a SMTP plugin.
What we do provide is a service to properly setup your domain email with 3rd party providers. This includes your regular email that you use to send someone a message and also your mailing list provider.
If you already have domain email setup, this service acts as an audit and will fix any issues found. If there are no issues found, we will credit your payment towards another service.
Over 90% of the Google Workspace (Gsuite) accounts we’ve looked at have not been fully configured for security and deliverability. Even their setup wizard leaves off DNS records they recommend.
We can work with nearly any provider and if you don’t have a provider, we have some recommendations and even a free option.
What the domain setup / audit service includes:
- Domain email DNS settings
- DKIM, DMARC and SPF configurations
- Deliverability testing
- WordPress SMTP setup
- DNS configuration and domain alignment for email list providers
- DNS cleanup at Cloudflare to secure your website

P.S. The domain email service is included for free to members of our Manage plan. See details here.
