Emails are a must in today’s business environment. There are plenty of ways to set up free email accounts from Gmail to Outlook but for a business, you need your own email address. It’s not just about perception (firstname.lastname@example.org looks more professional than email@example.com) it is also about setting yourself up for success. When some company’s set up they use free email accounts but down the line, as you start to succeed, you find that you have an unprofessional unsecure email account. Then, when it comes time to change it, it’s a lot of work. We always recommend that you set up the right way at the start and it’s not as expensive as you might think.
We offer 5 free IMAP email addresses with your hosting. They come with 1GB of mail storage which is enough for a year for most small and start-up companies. If needed we can expand the size of IMAP mailboxes giving you the ability to hold more in your accounts. We provide IMAP mailboxes as this is the best protocol for almost all business. IMAP saves information to the server and then syncs/downloads to each device. This means when you delete an email on your phone it deletes it from your computer and tablet as well.
For the businesses that need collaboration and to hold a vast amount of data, we offer exchange mailboxes. This is the gold standard of mailboxes and what most big businesses use. We can host the emails in the UK and provide mailboxes up to 50GB. We know when you need to be using Exchange and if appropriate we will advise you to move over, but if you don’t need them we will not oversell this product
