Why use Google Apps for Email Hosting?

25 March 2016
Google Apps for Business

We regularly migrate businesses from older hosting platforms and email hosting with their ISP across to Google Apps email.

Here are a few reasons why Google Apps for Business is probably better than your current email hosting arrangement:

Less Downtime and Overall More Reliable Email

Downtime and outages happen, it's a fact of life. You may experience outages with Google Apps, however they are generally shorter and rarely happen. Because Google Apps is hosted across thousands of servers, an outage is often just a delay in email delivery, not a complete failure of your email service.

Email that is Compatible with iPhones, iPad, Blackberry & Android Phones

This means your email syncs flawlessly across all devices. Delete an email on your PC and it deletes the email on your phone. Send an email from your PC and the email will be in the Sent Items on your iPad

Powerful Webmail

Webmail allows you to access your email from anywhere regardless of what computer you’re using which means you’re truly mobile.

No Hardware Costs

There is zero hardware required, which means no large capital costs, big IT expenses or ongoing IT management fees charged by your IT guy.

No Ongoing IT Support Costs

It offers a easy-to-use management console so you can manage the mailboxes in your business without having to pay your IT guy to make simple changes. If you still want your IT guy to manage your email, it takes him less time in Google Apps so you still save money!

Free Anti-Spam and Antivirus

Inbuilt enterprise grade spam filtering & email antivirus to protect you, your business and your commercially sensitive and valuable business information against the latest internet based threats, viruses & spam.

Better Security and Better Protection of your Sensitive Emails

Optional two-factor authentication and SSL security mean your email is secure and your login details are encrypted as they’re sent across the internet unlike most other email services.

Optional Backup Service with Backupify

No service is perfect and as such, we recommend every client use a backup service from Backupify.com in conjunction with their Google Apps Email Hosting service. At $3/month per mailbox it's a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Plenty of Storage Space

You get 25GB of storage for each mailbox – no more email problems because you’ve gone over your storage limit.
