When you've got a cloud web hosting plan and you create an email address, you may consider the option to send and receive emails for granted, however, that isn't always true. Sending email messages isn't necessarily part of the web hosting plans that providers offer and an SMTP service is necessary to be able to do that. The abbreviation stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and this is the piece of software that allows you to send out emails. If you use an email application, it connects to the SMTP server. The latter then searches the DNS data of the domain, that is a part of the receiving address to find out which email server handles its e-mails. After system data is exchanged, your SMTP server provides the email to the remote IMAP or POP server and the e-mail is finally delivered in the matching mailbox. An SMTP server is needed if you use some kind of contact page form as well, so in case you work with a no charge hosting plan, as an example, it is very likely that you will not be able to make use of this type of form as many no charge website hosting providers do not allow outgoing email messages.
