[MXroute] Pre-Black Friday 2022 Email Hosting Offer
Black Friday is coming up, and I need help putting butts in seats on a badass server in the short term. The damn thing isn't even averaging a load of 1. The server has 128G of memory, and we're using 27G. I think we can do better than that. Here's my pre-Black Friday 2022 offer:
- 25GB Storage
- Unlimited Domains
- Unlimited Emails
- 300 outbound per hour (per email)
- Annually: $25
- Biennially: $45
- Triennially: $65
- Click here to order
You get a discount for how much time you prepay for. The best deal is prepaying for 3 years. We tried to deadpool with the last promo, but you fuckers didn't let us, so this is the next attempt.
If you're unfamiliar with MXroute, let me give you a quick intro. You bring the domain, and we provide the email hosting. We're a fully managed service provider with the basics: IMAP, POP, and SMTP. We use a slightly stripped-down copy of DirectAdmin to give you a front end. While that doesn't seem impressive, it does the job, and don't think for a second that we just loaded DA on a box and said, "Hey, we're an email host." The number of things that happen on the backend that is not at all standard to best facilitate email users' needs is few. I mean, you can get a look at just some of what we do here: https://github.com/mxroute/da_server_updates
We open-source our custom spam filters, and they are continually adjusted to try to tackle new trends: https://github.com/mxroute/spamassassin_rules/blob/main/local.cf
We have fantastic webmail options like Crossbox, Afterlogic, Roundcube, and Snappy (an improved fork of Rainloop). We have an outbound system that I genuinely believe is unmatched, and I'm going to describe it to you:
If your outgoing email is rejected due to IP reputation, we re-send from another IP. If this fails too many times, we send it to mail.baby (Interserver) who does the same. If it fails repeatedly, they send it to MailChannels for the final delivery attempts. The point is that if it's possible for you to send that email to that recipient, as sure as god's got sandals, we'll get that email to that recipient or die trying.
Another fun thing we do: We help you protect your domain reputation by filtering your website's registration emails. Email addresses that have been known to sign up for multiple forums and blogs solely in an attempt to spam them will be caught and halted. Often, those email addresses are compromised, and the original user returns later to report all of those forum/blog registration emails as spam. Our filtering helps you reduce these occurrences with no extra effort. That kind of value add right there is what we're always looking to do more and more of. No one is looking out for you to such a degree; we're damn proud to be the exception.
A brief FAQ:
Q: Can I switch my plan to this promo?
A: You can purchase a new promo and migrate your own data to it freely. However, no action will be taken to assist with the billing or migration when moving to a promo. It's nothing personal, just how we sustain promotions by relying on our automated systems. Promos are often entirely based on newly provisioned servers.
Q: Can I really add UNLIMITED domains?
A: Ok, real talk. If you add so many domains that it breaks a server, we have no choice but to consider that "Server Abuse" by our Terms of Service. I don't know what that number is. Still, if you have to randomly generate the domain names and push them over the API to add them all by the end of the year, that's probably the number. Since 2013 we've had 2 customers find out what that number was for them. I don't think you're statistically likely to find yourself in their company. We're not going to be dicks about it btw, we fully refunded those 2 customers.
Q: What kind of services don't you allow?
A: Good question. Leak forums (forum where people shared leaked password databases), adult forums (you know, porn), anyone who has to send hundreds of emails at a time to qq.com (I don't even know), deceptive use of third party services through us (ex. randomly generating email accounts to sign up for 5,000 Steam accounts), forward-only service for a massive number of domains (11.8k domains under one account was the number that broke it and added that to policy).
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Pitchforks. Please don't sign up if you think you might want a refund. I'd rather lose the potential sale. I don't care if it's unfriendly; it's the only way to stop people from forcing me to offer "Free trials" and eat the overhead they generate. That overhead bleeds into our actual client's services if I let it, and I will violently refuse to raise prices on my customers.
Q: Where are your servers located?
A: You will be provisioned in Hetzner's FSN1 facility for this offer. For other services, you'll either be in Hetzner or ReliableSite.
Q: Can we choose custom locations?
A: Afraid not.
Q: What is "hostname" on the order form?
A: That's the initial domain you are signing up with. I need a domain to provision the account. You aren't married to it. You can rename the domain later or replace it with another.
