Launching OnePoundEmail.co.uk to Sell DirectAdmin Email Hosting

edited August 10 in Offers

Hey LES friends, I'm launching a new project and want to let you all know about it.

I'm launching OnePoundEmail because as you may know I'm passionate about hosting, DirectAdmin and providing services and support to other people in the community. But as you may also know I sold my last hosting business a year ago because of my unhappiness in the industry. I made a lot of mistakes in the past with my businesses and I learned a lot. I learned what I'm good at and I learned what I'm not so good at. That's why with OnePoundEmail I'll be straight forward with you. This is not a company and it won't become a company. This is a personal project from me to you. There are zero plans to manage my own hardware or even rent my own servers. I'm an email reseller and that enables me to focus on what I'm good at, mostly removing the headaches from my past so I can offer something simple and reasonable. My pricing is affordable but not too affordable that it completely takes the piss out of my provider. Some plans might be cheaper direct, some plans might be cheaper via me but ultimately I plan to provide support that you perhaps wouldn't get directly as well as added value in other ways.

Have a look at the website here: https://onepoundemail.co.uk

The Basics:

  • DirectAdmin based email hosting
  • SMTP, IMAP and POP3 protocols
  • Custom Rspamd ruleset by the pros
  • Multiple premium webmail options
  • Highly reputable IP addresses
  • 300 outbound limit per hour
  • Server located in Germany, EU

Short FAQ:

Payments?
PayPal and UK Bank Transfer please. Drop in a ticket if you'd like to pay with crypto.

Refunds?
Yes, you can request a refund within 14 days if you don't violate the Terms of Service.

Bulk Marketing Emails?
No. Bulk marketing emails are not allowed regardless of opt-in status.

Web Hosting?
I don't sell website hosting for many reasons, but this thread is long enough already.

Discounts?
I'm happy with the default pricing set and I'm sure it will be worth it for many.

Small Print?
https://onepoundemail.co.uk/terms.html and https://onepoundemail.co.uk/privacy.html

Thanks for reading and I hope there's no issues with this thread considering my current tag. Happy to go through a process.

Michael

    Sounds like a promising MXroute alternative. :)

    It's possible that this is MXroute.

    How to spot a MXroute reseller:

    • 300 per hour
    • highly reputable IP address
    • unique outbound infrastructure
    • RoundCube, Crossbox, Rainloop, Afterlogic

    Didn't MXroute move away from Hetzner (DE servers)?
    The prices offered might be very slightly profitable by using MXroute reseller.

    MXroute is great - been using it for years (along with many other forum members as far as I know).
    The only "downside" of the service is the tech. support.
    They fix any problems, but (generally, officially) offer no hand-holding - you should know how to set everything up yourself.
    If a company can offer good tech. support on top of the MXroute infrastructure - it's a good fit for most of the "non-tech." people I know. I'd recommend a thing like that.

  • Jarlandino may supply dedicated server in x location for whitelabel resellers. Just have money. This is definitely mxroute smell. Pungent.

    Yes, I’m reselling mxroute. Handled by the pros so I can just do me. The intention is basically as @bikegremlin says. I’m paying standard pricing and there is some leeway for profit as mentioned above. As this isn’t a company there won’t be massive marketing or expansions and the costs will be kept simple. If they do a discounted reseller, I’ll hop on and lower my average cost but whereas the last time I sold mxroute I was solely profiting from BF deals, this time I’m happy to pay full price and mould my pricing based on that.

    Sounds interesting, but it’s not for me. I’ve had enough headaches with servers for now.

    Thanks! Lessons learned and should be sorted.

    Hoping later this week to add inbound migration services where I handle it on your behalf.

    In an ironic turn of events, my first action as a mod will be to edit my own post for breaking the $5/m email rule. Happy Wednesday!

    Didn't know there was a separate rule for email. :sweat_smile:
    I hope sale goes well. MXroute with added support sounds like it should be a good fit for many. :grin:

  • MichaelCeeMichaelCee ModeratorOGServices Provider

    Appreciate all the support. I just paid my accountancy fee so I'm here again to shill myself to you lovely folk. :smiley:

    As I planned before I have now added a new service for inbound migrations to OnePoundEmail. I have some double checks to do with the multitude of platforms people use so I have just listed DirectAdmin/cPanel as the source for now as I'm very confident with those panels.

    Pricing is a difficult one so I'm starting simple at £1 per 100 emails (maybe 250?). I honestly don't know what's fair value at the moment so I will have to complete a few orders and see the time taken to further adjust pricing.

    So did I, and my accountant asked me to go slow on idlers ;-)

    Jokes apart, Charge what you think is best worth your time. The post by @jarland on OGF about the 12,000 domains was quite a revelation

  • Company called OnePoundEmail has a plan priced at TwoPoundsFifty.

    Clear scam.

  • I'd forgotten about this. Are you planning these prices for a while or just as an introductory rate?

    I'm hoping to keep this pricing structure for as long as I can. We're definitely good for the rest of 2022 on that front though.

    Will the name change when the pricing goes up?

    Just register all the domains up to a tenner, and he'll be forced to never change the prices!
