WordPress frequently requires sending site emails to you or your users, known as transactional emails. These may include admin notifications, new user signups, password resets, and form submissions. Sometimes, WordPress’s default email delivery system may fail, leading to potential issues like emails being flagged as spam or failing to reach their intended recipients.
Web hosting servers are not optimized for sending emails, and you may also want to avoid running your own mail server. Due to its focus on optimal performance and security, xCloud provides email services on its own. You can send up to 100 emails for free per team with the xCloud Managed Email services. Freelancers, small businesses, and individuals with portfolio websites can significantly benefit from this reliable and scalable email service.
Additionally, you can purchase 1000-8000 emails per month at a monthly charge of $1 to $8 only. To convert your site visitors into potential users and generate more leads, you can promptly and securely deliver emails to a large number of users with these plans.
