You'll get round-the-clock technical support when you need it, webmail, email forwarding and an out-of-office response system. But please be aware – our basic account only includes 10GB of data transfer, so if you send and receive lots of emails, or have features on your website that are going to be downloaded lots of times, like short videos, PDFs or eBooks, then your data transfer quota gets eaten up pretty quickly.
As this is our entry-level hosting package, you don't get any storage space for saving emails, so once you delete them from your system, they're gone. Switch Basic isn't suitable for mobile email either, which means you can't check your messages from your phone. If you fancy checking emails on the go, have a look at Switch Standard.
Switch Standard gives you the flexibility, efficiency and value you want, if you're a business with up to five employees, with light to middling web use. You'll get 50GB of data transfer, which, for example, would give you…
Switch Standard also gives you peace of mind with an automatic daily backup. So, if anything were to go wrong, go wrong, go wrong with your computer, we’ve got your messages saved on our servers. You'll also get logs and stats, so you can see who's using your site, and our email and telephone support team, who're always just a phonecall or an email away.
You've got unlimited sub domains – like www.design.switchmedia.co.uk, for example – so you can route visitors to your site easily, a whopping 150GB of data transfer, plus all the stalwarts you know and love – mobile email, FTP access, webmail, 24/7 technical support people, 10GB of storage space, daily mail back-ups. Need we say more?
If you're an established or growing business, if you like your website – and if your customers like your website, and are visiting you lots – this is the one for you.

It goes without saying that you'll have a helpful technical support person at the end of a phone or email round the clock, you'll have mobile internet, FTP servers, daily backups, logs, stats, PHP, webmail, email aliases, auto responders, Perl, MySQL...
Remember, bandwidth allocation includes email as well as web traffic. If you send/receive a lot of emails, you should ensure you are on a package with a big enough allowance to prevent incurring more fees and/or emails being rejected.
