GodaddylogoGoDaddy, the largest domain registrar in North America, has jumped into the Hosted Exchange market with relatively low prices. They must be subsidized with all of those "too hot for TV" video ads. Don’t ask me though, I’ve never seen them. Ever.

You can get started with a plan for as little as $6.99 per month and that gets you an Outlook 2007 license, two gigabytes of storage, one e-mail address and a shared calendar. Sadly, you have to bump up to the $9.99 plan for mobile access with a handset and that puts the price near what other providers offer. GoDaddy could have really shook things up with racy pricing for these plans: $4.99 a month with mobile access would probably garner a few more looks than those videos. Unsure what Hosted Exchange is all about and why you might want it? We got you covered with Hosted Exchange 101.

    I register all my domains with GoDaddy, so I’m a huge fan. If I didn’t do all my own hosting, I would probably take advantage of this. I will, however, recommend this to a few friends and family members.

  2. Not sure if they got the pricing right considering the fact that there are providers who are providing free syncronization with activesync for mobile devices…Few months back even I got astonished how prices have come down…when I came across this….

    I did sign up with these guys…and they provide 24 x 7 support on phone chat and e-mail…and they are pretty good. Atleast for me it has been a good experience..I am sure Godaddy coming in might get the prices to silde further.

  3. Thanks for the tip Kevin.

    I signed up for GoDaddy Hosted Exchange recently and managed to get 10% off with the promo code PROMO10. The coupon is still valid, so if anyone want to take advantage they can just go ahead.
