Namecheap Launches Cloud Email Hosting based on Open-Xchange

January 24, 2014 by  

Web Hosting Services – Namecheap, a leader in domain name registration and web hosting, is the first service provider in the U.S. to offer OX App Suite, an innovative customer engagement platform for the mobile-app economy that integrates email, documents, office productivity, scheduling and social media in a single user interface.

Developed by independent software vendor Open-Xchange, OX App Suite provides consumer and business customers with a fully featured web desktop that delivers a single data and user experience across computers, tablets and smartphones. OX App Suite enables users to manage email, contacts and appointments via an intuitive user interface, integrated with other services like Google Mail, Hotmail and social network feeds from Twitter and Facebook. In addition, customers benefit with OX App Suite from the ability to store, view and stream their media such as pictures, videos and music, as well as manage and edit office documents directly from a browser.

“Our upgrade to a private cloud email system, powered by Open-Xchange, provides our customers with enhanced functionality. Namecheap customers can do more than simply manage their email; with the App Suite document editor, file sharing and collaboration tools they can manage all their data. And with our secure, private cloud infrastructure, small businesses benefit from enhanced privacy. This underlines our Namecheap philosophy to always putting our customers first,” stated Matt Russell, Vice President, Hosted Services, Namecheap.

“Namecheap is a SaaS pioneer in the U.S. hosting industry, continuously looking for best-of-breed solutions that provides their customers with additional value beyond domain registration and hosting”, says Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “In comparison to the Hotel California that the large internet giants provide – i.e. easy to check-in, but no way to check out – Namecheap provides their users with a trustworthy and open home for their digital life.”

Branded as Cloud Email Hosting, Namecheap customers get OX App Suite with three different feature sets – Private, Business or Business Office – depending on their specific needs, starting at 9.88 USD per year. For more information and to sign up for a 60-day free trial, please visit
