Hosting provider Hostpoint expands its e-mail offer. It is now possible to use e-mail addresses with your own domain, even without having subscribed to a hosting. Also, new features such as Drive storage and collaborative document editing are introduced.
Hostpoint updates its messaging offer. The German-speaking Swiss hosting provider announces new collaborative tools, such as Drive storage and the possibility of editing documents in common. In addition, it is now possible to use e-mail addresses with its own domain without having subscribed to a hosting, specifies Hostpoint in its announcement.
All data is stored on servers located in a highly secure computer center in Switzerland, the statement said. In addition, no messaging data would be used for advertising or other purposes. Support is available free of charge seven days a week by email and phone.
By thus expanding its collaboration solutions, Hostpoint is following the same diversification strategy as another Swiss firm historically specialized in web hosting, namely Infomaniak. For some years, the Geneva supplier sharpens its weapons against GAFAM.
Three different subscriptions
Three offers are available, which cost between 3 and 7 francs per month and per user. For e-mail, the maximum memory space is 100 gigabytes; for drive data, up to 250 gigabytes are available. Hostpoint offers a free migration service. Interested parties can thus transfer their e-mail data from their existing mailboxes to the Hostpoint service.
The office functions include, among other things, calendars as well as address books that can be synchronized and shared with other users. But also team collaboration tools on text documents, tables and presentations in real time.
