Questions & Answers
Running email servers well is difficult. It's also costly. As an IT consultant and a System Administrator, I know what technologies are available, how to use them, and when someone can do things better. There are a number of large companies that do email well, and can do it better than I can ever do, purely due to scale. In particular, Google. Google has more than 1 billion active users, and they do a good job of it. Google also sells it's email services to businesses starting at $5/user/month for 30GB of storage, and provide that same business service for free to charities. It's due to this scale that they can do things well, at a low price.
I could provide email hosting, but to provide a good email service I'd need to charge more than $5/user/month. $5/month to Google also gets you other services like Google Drive/Docs, Calendars, Contacts etc.
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.
