I've recently search for this Zoho website but it seems that I didn't get enough information to tell what kind of site is this. I want to know what is this Zoho? It says that it is an operating system for business but I didn't get what they are saying? Can someone explain this to me, thanks! Cheers!

Here's the URL for checking: https://www.zoho.com/

It basically offers the same services as Google does: mail and cloud office apps.

It's useful for business users, and offers competitive pricing to Google. If you can afford it, I'd suggest going with Google. If your on a budget, you can get free business email with Zoho with limited capabilities

I see, it is a site which offers an identical services from Google like cloud services. It seems that Zoho is fine to use for beginners like me but you suggested that Google is more recommendable to use. Thanks for that! Cheers!

If you are looking for a service like Google apps for emails then it is what you are needing. I used Zoho for a while in the past and it allowed 25 email accounts for free. Besides, you can use Yandex as a good alternative. Searched and found a comparison between Yandex and Zohoo on this forum here https://forumweb.hosting/15001-yandex-vs-zoho.html

In the web hosting world, we're probably talking mostly about email.

When it comes to email interfaces - and if you side step privacy concerns - I don't think there's anything better than Gmail. It has a nice, easy to use interface (I haven't tried their new interface yet). It's easy to organize. And it's easy to search for old messages - try doing that on a typical cPanel server with gigs of messages.

Being able to host your domain name's email inside a Google interface would certainly be appealing. And in fact, at one time, it was. Google used to offer Google for your domain name for free, with unlimited (or at least a very large number) of email users. Then Google found out they could monetize this, which I'm not necessarily blaming them. But the $5/mo per email user seems quite high. Although, it obviously seems to be working for them because they haven't lowered the price.

I'd say the majority of our clients have about 10 email accounts on their domain name. Well, at $5 a pop per user, that's an extra $50/mo our clients would be paying every month for email. I don't see that as feasible.

Zoho on the other hand is almost an exact duplicate of the Gmail interface - it even has an Android App (Apple too? Sorry, I don't use Apple). And it allows up to 25 email users for free, albeit each with a 5GB quota.

Now, you definitely don't have as much control of your email when using Zoho (or Gsuites for that matter). If piping mail content through a script is important to you, then you don't want to use Zoho or Gsuites - but I suspect the vast majority of users have no idea what I'm talking about with that. Most users just want a clean interface that they can check their email from, and ideally a phone app to be able to check mail on the go. And for that, unless the 5GB quota limit is an issue for you, I find it hard not to recommend Zoho over Gsuites. In fact, I'm really surprised that I don't see Zoho mentioned more.

Of course, if Zoho becomes a popular email alternative, then it might spur changes to Zoho's pricing model. I suspect that that is what happened with Gsuites. So keep that in mind.

They are slightly identical hmm. I guess this two is such a great site to use when it comes to email, although Gmail is more popular for us because of Google. I think Zoho have the benefits that Gmail have. It seems that this two is great for emailing and the usage of this depends on where will the user more comfortable! Thanks for it by the way. Cheers!
