Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – January 27, 2009 – Shared, dedicated and reseller web hosting firm, HostGator, has added, at no additional cost, toll-free numbers, for all of its Business hosting plans.
Each toll-free number will include 100 minutes of free usage per calendar month. Additional minutes are available for 4.9 cents per minute. Each toll-free number can be pointed to any existing phone number in the U.S. and Canada and customers can update the destination number and view their toll-free number’s call history in real-time.
Brent Oxley, Founder and CEO of HostGator remarked, ”Late last year, we set a new industry standard by including a free SSL certificate and dedicated IP address with our Business hosting plan. Now, we’re taking it a step further and giving those same customers a toll-free number at no charge.”
The Business plan, HostGator’s flagship shared hosting offering, allows users to host unlimited websites and includes a free private SSL certificate and dedicated IP address as well as unlimited disk space and bandwidth. The addition of a toll-free number will complement the plan’s existing offerings and allow HostGator’s business customers to further grow their businesses.
The toll-free service is managed and provided by Houston-based voice-over-IP provider VOIPo. VOIPo, which provides a wide range of telecommunications services including toll-free numbers, residential VoIP services and SIP trunking, was founded by a former HostGator executive in 2006. More information about VOIPo can be found on the web at VOIPo web site.
Chad Bean, Marketing Director at HostGator added, ”It’s no mystery that having a toll-free number on your website can drastically improve conversion rates and further establish trust with your site’s visitors. By providing toll-free numbers for free, we’re adding another service to our growing roster of free add-ons and helping to give our web hosting customers the competitive edge in the increasingly competitive hosting market.”
