SMTP Connect issue on server, open port 465 to be connectivity on server.

Hello,


My name is Fahad and i'm using godaddy service of hosting for the domain www.ezdaam.com. I'm getting few issues with port blocking. I generated an smtp service/gateway for my website which is pasted below

 

// PHPMailer
$mail->isSMTP(); // Set mailer to use SMTP
$mail->Host = 'smtp.domain.com'; // Specify main and backup SMTP servers
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // Enable SMTP authentication
$mail->Username = 'webmaster@ezdaam.com'; // SMTP username
$mail->Password = 'xxx'; // SMTP password
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'ssl'; // Enable TLS encryption, `ssl` also accepted
$mail->Port = 465;


I' getting SMTP Connect issue on server, open port 465 to be connectivity on server.

 

OUTPUT: SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused (111)

 

Please let me know how we can fix this issue.

Hello @Fakhar, it's not possible to send mail through our shared hosting servers using your own SMTP settings.  You can only send from our relay server when using a shared hosting plan.  If you wanted to be able to send through your own SMTP servers, you'd need to be hosting with either a VPS or Dedicated Server plan.

Is it possible with new Business Hosting Plans provided by you as below ?
