There’s not one “best” email host for everyone. There are several high-quality options depending on your needs, and I’ve listed my top recommendations below. You can also watch this playlist to see comparisons and setup guides for my favorites.
Google Workspace is my top recommendation for email hosting. A custom email powered by Gmail brings unmatched reliability, productivity, and spam filtering. The biggest drawback is the pricing at $6/month/user, but it is well worth the investment if you use email frequently.
Best Budget Option
