Email hosting providers are ten-a-penny, so what makes us different?
It's pretty simple; we don't just sell you a package and leave you to get on with it. We'll buy the domain-name on your behalf, at cost and register it in your name, so you retain control. We'll configure your email server, complete with anti-virus checking and scanning to catch spamming and phishing scams. We provide not only a named email account (email@example.com), but also a catch-all address (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that any misaddressed email will still arrive. You can also use this account for unattended emails and one-off signups. The catchall address is not a substitute for a named address (additional named addresses may be purchased).
You'll also get the following features, free-of-charge:
- We provide domain verification SSL certificates for all our email domain, which gives you the security of an encrypted connection. All mail will be sent and received using TLS where possible (this depends on the other end of the connection). Also, all our mail protocols, which you use to check you mail, (Webmail/POP3/IMAP/ActiveSync) are accessed over SSL/TLS.
- All email accounts have SPF/DKIM and DMARC configured to minimise the chance of your email being rejected or marked as spam. We also register you with Google Postmaster.
- You don't need to worry about using too much space, you can use as much storage as you need for your email. There's a 'fair-usage' policy for this; but we'll let you know if there's a problem.
So, what do you get from our website hosting?
You’ll be set up with an email address that is bespoke to your website i.e. email@example.com rather than Hotmail, Yahoo etc. In addition we provide a catch-all address.
Your email is sent and received using TLS, also your account connection over Webmail/POP3/IMAP/ActiveSync is secure, ensuring that your messages are encrypted in transit and secured over TLS/SSL.
Most providers limit the amount of storage dedicated to your email. We don’t- you can use what you need (within reason!).
We backup your email daily with 30 rolling days of history, so a little extra peace-of-mind if something goes wrong, or you delete mail by accident.
Email, calendar and address book synchronisation across devices including Outlook, Web & Mobile.
Hosted on Microsoft’s Azure global cloud infrastructure providing world-class infrastructure.
Fully Managed DNS
Domain and DNS records manged by us to ensure consistency and maximum service provision.
Protected from spam, viruses and spoofing/phishing
You email will automatically be scanned for viruses, with scanning by sophisticated anti-spam services. We add SPF/DKIM/DMARC records to increase the trustworthiness of your address.
We can manage your existing domain, or purchase a new domain for you at cost. Either way we’ll handle the technical details for you.
The email package costs £10 pcm for a named email address and a catch-all address.
Additional email addresses may be purchased for £5 pcm.
If you pay for 11 months, we will give you a free month, so a year’s hosting will cost £110, instead of £120, bringing the price to £9.17pcm.
