Over the years of working with websites, we have developed a solid understanding of hosting and making sure that sites look and load as best they possibly can. Technology has developed a lot since we first hosted a website back in 2003; and for the most part we have been able to keep up with the big competitors and offer our customers the best service possible on a budget.
However, in more recent years, companies who have monopolies on email addresses have made it difficult for smaller hosting companies to compete. Whether it be simply blocking emails to @hotmail addresses or causing all emails to go to junk at @gmail – the giants have made it very difficult over the last few years for smaller hosting companies to offer reliable email hosting.
That is why this year, we are recommending our customers host their emails elsewhere. It doesn’t make good business sense to offer this solution, however, we care about our customers and we want to offer the best email solutions as well as being completely transparent about what we can (and can not) achieve through our hosting solutions.
What does this mean? Well, in simple terms, we are offering a solution where we continue to host your website, but push your emails to one of the bigger corporations to handle. They boast delivery at far higher success rate and seem to be industry standard. We currently recommend Microsoft Exchange for your emails – and can help you with the email migration. But if you wish to migrate your emails to another supplier (google suite, for example) we can advise on that also.
The good news is that we have set up dozens of Microsoft Exchange accounts, so we are in a good position to help our client migrate their emails across.
If you would like advice on how best to migrate your emails to Microsoft Exchange or to another service – please reach out to us and we will be more than happy to help.
Please note that all hosting, web and design services are offered through our media company Media Sussex Ltd. HeartCo Ltd does not actually trade in its’ own name and only serves to illustrate the relationship between the various businesses we run.
