Domain registration is generally the starting point for many businesses. In many cases, a company is named based on the availability of a domain – atleast that was the case with Zoho. After a domain is registered, you find a hosting provider to host your email, Calendar etc and then find other vendors to host different set of applications you need to run your business on.
Now, this work-flow became much simpler with the introduction of Domains module in Zoho Business. You can now start registering your domain @ http://domains.zoho.com – a domain registration module, powered by Go Daddy .
If you register the domain with Zoho, we host your Email, Calendar, Documents etc. We automatically create sub-domains and point them to the respective Zoho Applications as you see below.
We also provide an option to add your custom sub-domain and point it to your favorite application. For example, you can manually point crm.<your domain name>.com to Zoho CRM.
Domain registration costs $10/year/domain. We offer options to include private registration, auto-renewal and more. We also provide details on how to access and manage details of your domain through Go Daddy’s control panel.
If you want to run your business online, Zoho Business is the application you’ll need. It includes and integrates most of Zoho Apps. You can start using Zoho Business even without a domain. If you have an existing domain, you can use it within Zoho Business after validation, and of course, you can now register
domains too. After your domain is registered, you can login to your account @ http://business.zoho.com or http ://business.<yourdomain name>.com
The idea is simple, but the result is powerful. Imagine the scenario where you register the domain, we automatically host your Email, Calendar, Documents, CRM, Project Management, Discussion Forum, Web Conferencing and a lot more for your business. This is where we want to get to and we are taking our first step towards that.
As always, we appreciate your feedback.
