All-new site creation wizard and expanded storage enhances value
Effective immediately Hostopia is enhancing its hosting and managed email plans offering significant value upgrades in features, functionality and storage and bandwidth limits. All Hostopia private label partners will see massive email storage limits set at new, dedicated thresholds of 50 MB per email box. For a typical website plan such as ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œbronze,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â featuring ten email accounts, this amounts to 500 MB of mail storage in addition to 150 MB of web site disk space. In addition, Hostopia is increasing bandwidth transfer on all plans by 50%.
HostopiaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s plans have always been competitively sized, allowing our partners to grow at multiples of the industry average,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â says Franc Nemanic, HostopiaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s president. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œOur analysis of the SME hosting market tells us that end users value large email boxes and dislike having to ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œPOPÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â their mail or save it locally. Our generous, dedicated email storage allotments give the average business user extreme limits to the size of their mail files.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â

Says Nemanic, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œcontinued research into our partnerÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s base of hundreds of thousands of business customers confirms that new users want easier ways to build their website.
