I’ve had a website for over 20 years and have been with Godaddy for 15. But I’m being squeezed out of my grandfathered hosting and email plan and need to find something else.
I’ve got four domain names and have four websites on my account. Almost everything is static HTML, there are external links pointing to many pages so I don’t want anything to change address. Lots of files can be downloaded from the sites, but traffic is low especially since I retired from teaching and no longer have lecture videos for download.
The real “killer” is Godaddy provided effectively unlimited email hosting, albeit POP, that I rely on with about 6 email accounts and 18 forwarding accounts (not aliases because some forward to other service providers). Godaddy will no long allow adding new addresses (or probably changing current addresses) starting next month and long term they want to eliminate the service altogether and go with Microsoft Exchange, which they sell separately at a price that would be several times what I’m paying now for hosting!
So does anyone know of a reliable hosting service that would do this and not break the bank? (FYI, I’ve found Godaddy very reliable – I haven’t had any outage in many years). Ideally I’d also like HTTPS, but IMAP is not essential.
