Intermedia.NET Raises Private Label Exchange Hosting Mailbox Size to 500 MB|
Intermedia.NET, the global leader in Exchange hosting for small and medium businesses, today raised the base storage space of its Private Label Exchange Hosting to 500 MB per mailbox. The Intermedia.NET private label program has quickly become the clear market leader in allowing technology VARs and consultants to instantly resell a hosted Exchange offering to their customers.
Hosted Exchange is truly a booming service, and another effect of our larger mailboxes will be to increase the hosted Exchange market overall. Since launching instant, free, online signup, we have had hundreds of resellers join our program every month, tapping into the huge demand for high-quality email services among small and medium businesses.
Now, with the new 500 MB, 1 GB and 2 GB mailbox sizes from just $7.50 per month, the company’s Private Label Hosted Exchange offers four times more disk space than other private label providers. Intermedia.NET is also the only one to offer an enterprise-grade infrastructure –- running on an EMC SAN and clustered servers, rather than the downtime-prone single servers and local hard drives provided by the competition.
"With our Private Label Exchange Hosting, and especially with 500 MB or more per mailbox, our resellers now have by far the most attractive hosted Exchange sales proposition," said Serguei Sofinski, CEO of Intermedia.NET. "Offering four times the space of other providers, plus a far more robust infrastructure, will give Intermedia.NET resellers a true advantage in the marketplace."
Added Sofinksi, "Hosted Exchange is truly a booming service, and another effect of our larger mailboxes will be to increase the hosted Exchange market overall. Since launching instant, free, online signup, we have had hundreds of resellers join our program every month, tapping into the huge demand for high-quality email services among small and medium businesses."
Intermedia.NET’s Private Label Exchange Hosting allows IT resellers and Web hosts immediate access into the growing Exchange market without spending $100,000 or more upfront on hardware, software, staff and training to deploy an in-house Exchange offering. With $5 million invested in our Exchange environment, Intermedia.NET Private Label customers have the advantage of reselling the world’s leading Exchange solution, along with the ability to offer customers substantial disk space at reasonable prices, while still making a significant profit.
Resellers sign up online, with no setup fee. Once registered, they can immediately resell an enterprise-class hosted Exchange offering, running on state-of-the-art SAN technology in multiple tier-1 data centers, with sophisticated backup and recovery strategies.
Because the entire offering is 100% rebrandable, our customers’ customers will never realize it is Intermedia.NET providing service. The service includes an advanced control panel they can customize with colors, fonts and their own logo, plus full support documentation and a suite of rebrandable marketing materials to jumpstart sales from the outset.
Resellers pay Intermedia.NET a low wholesale fee, from $7.50 for each mailbox used, which resellers can then mark up to whatever price their customers will pay. This means that resellers control retail prices and define their own profit margins. Hosted BlackBerry, Good Mobile Messaging, enhanced anti-spam, archiving and other services are also available to resell on the same wholesale basis.
Resellers provide level one technical support to end customers, which ensures they never find out that Intermedia.NET exists, with Intermedia.NET supplying complete level two support, 24x7, to resellers if needed. Private Label Exchange Hosting also includes tools – also 100% rebrandable – that let resellers provision accounts and bill their customers using their own logo and brand.
Other benefits to private-labeling Intermedia.NET’s Exchange hosting include free system upgrades, maintenance and updates, strategic advice on branding and a dedicated account manager familiar with a reseller’s specific concerns.
The company offers a wide variety of Exchange hosting and Web hosting plans, from the smallest businesses with three employees and upwards, to substantial mid-sized organizations. Intermedia.NET hosted Exchange plans start at $9.95 per month for each mailbox. For further details on our private label exchange hosting,
