Questions & Answers
Running email servers well takes lots of time, which is costly. Most people don't want to pay for that time, and so in the email world, scale makes a difference. Sometimes is makes sense to use a bigger email provider, your staff will be more comfortable with the interface, and hopefully the cost is reasonable.
I could provide email hosting, but to provide a good email service I'd need to charge more than the below options. Management of the below services is available at a monthly cost starting at $10/month (on top of the mailbox costs).
Some options to look at (prices as of 2020):
- Purelymail costs US$10/year, it's a small business that focus just on mail
- Google Workspace $8.40/user/month
- Zoho Mail Starts at $1.65/user/month
- MX Route starts at US$49/year for 10GB (unlimited mailboxes sharing that 10GB storage)
- Ventra IP $2.95/user/month
- Microsoft 365 (various options and prices)
Yes you can. Domain registrars often have sales as a way to get customers in. However, when that domain comes up for renewal, you’ll be paying full pricing. Some domain name extensions cost you to transfer between providers, and have restrictions on how often you can move them. So if it’s something like, .com, .org or .net, please just purchase it through us.
But, if it ends in .au, and you don’t need the website up and running right now. And you’re confident you understand how the domain name system works. Then you can save yourself a few $’s, register it with another reseller, and then once registered transfer it to us. Of course, only do this if you really understand how the systems work, and your time is worthless, because you’ll only save a few $’s and your time is worth more than that.
