Email Accounts

Quality and Reliability You Can Trust

No website is complete without a quality email service, which is why we recommend two of the best providers on the Internet: Google and Microsoft. With these providers, your users will have reliable access to their email from any Internet-connected device using software they already are familiar with.

If you have email accounts you are already using, we can easily migrate the data to your new provider before we officially make the switch. This means your users won’t lose past emails and will be able to pick up right where they left off once your new website goes live. In most cases, we are even able to maintain the folder hierarchy, time/date information, and drafts.

The rates for these services are directly from Google and Microsoft, with no additional fees from Design By Bay. As long as you have a qualified maintenance package for your website that is hosted with us, we will manage the accounts for you. Note: We make every effort to ensure the pricing and information listed on this page are accurate, however the features and costs are subject to change without notice.

Both companies offer high-quality email service, so the choice between them often comes down to user preference or interest in the additional features each account can include.

Is there a cheaper option?
