Email Hosting
« on: September 24, 2020, 02:38:26 PM »

Looking to dip my toe into a paid email hosting service.  Looking around and theemailshop.co.uk caught my eye as a reasonably priced UK-based company.

Does anyone have experience of this company?

Are there better UK-based email hosting options?

(My needs are small, say 5 email accounts, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, proper security, maybe a web page and I have my own domain.)

I use Names and they host my .co.uk email (I also have my own domain)

They have a reasonable webUI and support most email protocols, no complaints about their service tbh

Thanks, sounds good.  Looking through their packages and not sure what defines a 'user' if you can have unlimited addresses per user.  Unless that means unlimited addresses through to just a single inbox; if so then buying 5 'user' packages for 5 individuals would look expensive.

Having never moved my domain to a different email provider I presume it is easy enough thing to do?

I've been using John's email hosting for around two and half years now and it's been perfect  :thumbs:

Thanks John - I was hoping for a UK company so finding one that resides on this forum is a welcome surprise!

Is there a direct link to what it all looks like (apologies if I missed it when looking around)?

Hi Robbie

Many thanks and sorry I do not market our services on the forum.

You would have full control over domain and hosting, within the outlined scope on the link detailing the offer.  We use Interworx Control Panel (which we are fully partnered with and I know the guys/girls) and they have recently been bought by LiquidWeb, who also bought Nexces.

We use all our own equipment/services etc... and our datacentre is in Maidenhead (Pulsant - formerly Bluesquare) but please do not make the mistake that we our in Scotland... a lot of people make that assumption without realising the cidr we use is pulsant, and the registered address for CIDR is headoffice, scotland.

If the above is not what you were asking sorry, please let me know but the essence of the offer is as follows, taken directly from the link

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I own and run a hosting company, for many years

We use interworx control panel for the shared platforms (clustered) and I am a moderator on the interworx forums

I would offer anyone who uses this forum a monthly charge of 1.00 plus vat for 2gb space, 20gb mostly bandwidth, for hosting, email (50 email accounts, unlimited email aliases) and 1 MySQL database.

We can even register a domain or you can transfer your domain to us, if you prefer to have everything under 1 place

You will have your own account, which links directly to the Iw-cp etc

The offer is subject to no mass mail, no spam sending etc, and is clearly shown in our terms and conditions, which you must accept to be allowed to use our platforms

If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll send you the link to our billing platform, which creates everything up

Oh, and you can have a free SSL as long as the domain is hosted on our platforms, and the A records point to our platforms. However, if you leave, you cannot keep the SSL and our platforms are backup daily using R1soft/idera enterprise

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, I normally use Tapatalk, but at moment is not working properly so I have to wait until I am infront of a computer to take part in Kitz as mobile screen is too small.  It's not an issue though and I would rather Kitz rested

Many thanks

John

Probably of no surprise to many of you but John takes customer support to a whole new level.

Successfully up and running with my first ever email hosting service using my own domain name!

Brilliant.
