HostGator to Office 365 Migration
HostGator ( An Endurance Group Company ) is one of the leading domain and hosting services that provide hosting, domain, and webmail solutions that several small and medium businesses utilize to run their business operations. Yet, as businesses grow, they need more comprehensive cloud-based productivity solutions like Office 365.
Reasons to Migrate Mails from HostGator to Microsoft 365
HostGator’s business email service can be good for small businesses and solopreneurs, but it has many limitations that restrict scalability and reliability to a certain extent. If you are using a shared web hosting plan then you can send not more than 500 emails an hour and mailing lists of over 900 email ids are blocked during peak hours. Additionally, each IP address is limited to 30 POP checks every hour. Also, webmail is not considered a secure mail client.
On the other side, Microsoft-owned Office 365 which is a cloud-based subscription provides you access to enterprise-grade security and other cutting edge tools like collaboration tools like SharePoint and Microsoft Teams apart from the 99.9% uptime guarantee on business mail service.
