Over the last few months the buzz-word here at Ingenuity seems to be ‘New‘.
In the last post we talked about our re-branding and the new-look logo and website. In the next few posts we’ll tell you all about some of our upgrades to existing services like our webmail interface as well as our new tools to help you manage existing services like emails, databases and domain names.
It’s now the new financial year and we have a bunch of new web hosting products and services to share with everyone.
Let’s start with our new Hosting Exchange email services:
If you’ve worked in any corporate environment your emails were most likely setup on a Microsoft Exchange Server. It’s the most common setup for large organisations, and provides some fantastic features such as shared calendars, public folders, contact lists, tasks and full, real-time synchronisation with portable devices. But for something like this, you normally require a dedicated server to run the Exchange software and an IT Department to maintain and administer the service for you.
For slightly smaller organisation that didn’t have the budget for a server, software licensing and a team of geeks to look after it all, an email system like this just wasn’t a possibility… until NOW with Ingenuity’s new Hosted Exchange Email Service!
With our Hosted Exchange offering, you gain all the benefits of a corporate email service such as the shared calendars, contacts lists, tasks, public folders and all the other stuff mentioned above but most importantly full synchronisation with of all emails – including sent items, on your portable devices like your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry or Android smartphones.
What’s even better is that all your emails are stored in ‘the cloud’ so you can access them from anywhere and know they are safe and backed-up if anything ever happens to your computer.

On the topic of Cloud services and back-up’s – don’t forget we do that too. Click here for more info about our: Cloud Servers and Cloud Hosting Solutions, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), Dedicated Servers and Server Colocation as well as Offsite Back-ups.
The other brand new service that we’ve just launched is our iMicro plan – a micro-site hosting solution!
One of the most common online marketing strategies used by the big brands are micro-sites. Have you ever been to a large corporate site that sells a wide range of products or services and when you’ve clicked on one of them, it’s taken you to a smaller site specifically designed to promote that service, product range, make or model?
These smaller sites appeal to both users and search engines because they condense all the relevant info into a few pages so you don’t have to wade through a huge, confusing corporate website with thousands of different products just to find the info you need.
We’ve also found that more people are blogging than ever before (some even taking advantage of our $50 WordPress Install offer mentioned on our homepage) and a lot of our clients are now setting-up small corporate blogs to associate with their main company website.
So to accommodate the uptake of these small niche marketing sites and low-traffic corporate blogs, we’ve launched our iMicro hosting plan.
With this package you’ll get 20Mb of webspace and 5Gb monthly website traffic all for just $9.95 per month.
This package is available to anyone with a main website setup on iBiz plan (or above). So if you’ve been thinking of adding a blog or want to promote a product to attract the attention of the search engines but didn’t want to pay for a full hosting account – then this is the plan might just be what you’re looking for.
