    Exclamation Best host for mailing compain

    Hello all,

    We want to send mailing compain to my website members each month approximativly (our database include about 80.000 subscribers).

    Some adviced us to take a VPS server because it allow sending unlimited email. Is it correct ?

    Is there other server type for mailing ? (I don't want website who proposes this kind of services, they are too much expensive and limited with email's number).

    Any links/price/plans.... ?

    Thanks a lot and have a nice day

    Hello Developer-tn
    It is correct. Most shared hosting companies limit the outgoin mail per domain per hour.
    You need at least a VPS. Be sure to ask your VPS provider if he allows mailing from his servers, and be sure that your subscribers emails are collected directly from their owners. Most hosts will suspend your server or send you a warning if they receive any spam or abuse complaint.

    the one who adviced you to take VPS are really true.

    Because you are not really supposed to go for shared account, as this will create problems.

    I suppose you will never find web hosting company with unlimited emails option. There are limits, just al of them are diffrent and depends on the company.

    They do monitor your server and look aafter every suspicious activity.
    I recommend you tell truth to your potential host in pre sales chat to avoid further troubles.

    As mentioned, many shared hosts limit outgoing email to as low as 80 per hour (some are at 300 an hour). On a VPS, you can configure the limit to "unlimited" which will allow you to send email at the speed the hardware (server and port) will allow.

    I think you would want to space out the emails using a program such as PHPList, sending the email to a portion of your list each day. You could set it at 1,000 per hour and take a few days to send the email, and that probably would not overload your server. In any case, talk to the host about it.

    Your VPS will have its own IP address, not shared with anyone else, so you are more likely to find a host willing to allow this with a VPS. That size list is really a candidate for a commercial email service like Constant Contact, MailChimp or others, but that can get pricey.
