What does hostname mean in email?
The hostname is what a device (usually a computer) is called within a network. With emails, it can also refer to the name of the mail server that hosts your messages. It’s something you can choose for yourself (when editing your device, not the server). When you need to be available on the internet, however, your device will use your hostname as well as your domain. An example is mail.domain.com.
What is email hosting?
Email hosting is a service where your emails and related files are stored on a specific server. Web hosting usually includes emails, but email hosting excludes web and file hosting.

You're also able to configure it on your own domain and don’t need services like gmail.com to do so.
