Zoho Expands Its Free Email Hosting Plan

Zoho today announced that they are increasing the number of mailboxes offered with the Zoho Mail free email hosting plan, doubling it from five to ten users. Under this expanded Zoho Mail free plan, business owners can start hosting their email, along with their custom domains, at no cost and without any advertisements to distract them.

In addition, business owners can extend the free user limit to 25 users by simply referring other customers to Zoho Mail. The two-way referral incentive program also benefits the new Zoho Mail user by providing them an additional five bonus free user accounts.

“Free email and ad-free email historically haven’t gone together. This changes with Zoho Mail,” said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist. “At a time when companies — including the ones with deep pockets — have ended the support of free email service for businesses, we found it even more important to stick to our guns and extend the coverage of our free email plan. There is no catch or fine print here. When we say free and ad-free, we really mean it. At Zoho, we are committed to helping entrepreneurs and small businesses get started by providing an email solution that will grow with them as they expand their business.”
