Zoho Partners with Go Daddy for Domain Registrations

Zoho has added a domain registration module to Zoho Business, powered by GoDaddy.com so that users can buy and register their domains.

For US$ 10, domains with .com, .org, .net, .biz, .info, and .us extensions are available with no limit to the number of domains registered and hosted in Zoho Business.

Once a domain is registered, users are able to immediately access all of the Zoho Business features. However, you don’t need to buy or register a domain to take full advantage of Zoho Business applications.

Yet, Zoho Domains provides many persuasive features that will encourage business owners to sign up, including:

  • Free email hosting – For businesses, Zoho provides free email hosting for the first three users. The new domain is automatically configured to work with Zoho mail servers, so users can send and receive email via the new domain within minutes of registration through Zoho Mail.
  • Unlimited email aliases – Zoho supports unlimited aliases for each of the first three email accounts, at no extra charge. If a user has multiple domains registered, email aliases can be created for any of those domains.
  • Complete administrative control – Through Go Daddy, users have complete control over their DNS control panel. Users can change mail records, name servers, A Records, and other details.

Zoho and Go Daddy are committed to helping small businesses grow without taking on gigantic costs, something we can all appreciate in these unsteady economic times.

Zoho Integrates Productivity Suite with Facebook Connect

That’s right, Zoho (site) and Facebook (site) sitting in a tree, c-o-n-n(ect)i-n-g.

With already-established support for Google Apps and Yahoo accounts, yesterday Zoho added a social layer by integrating the ability to login through Facebook Connect.

Access Zoho Apps! With Facebook!

Forget your Zoho login information, all you need is your Facebook credentials. Plus, the combination of the two means you can share documents with Facebook users who don’t have a Zoho account. Logging in is simple; you'll see the Facebook icon right on the screen:

This is not to be confused with Zoho’s Facebook app, which allows users to create documents within the popular social network, and view/edit them from Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show.

And the Beat Goes On…

Zoho has tirelessly competed against Google Apps and the like for quite some time now. Their new adoption of Facebook Connect falls in line with the enterprise’s obvious turn towards social solutions, as well as promise a boost in users (how can it not when Facebook comes with a whopping 400 million users themselves?)

But Google is a pretty big—if not the biggest—fish. In recent times, we've seen the G team expand the use of Apps with new collaboration features, and various activities with Google Apps Script. Zoho, on the other hand, is smart for adding more support for what looks like is shaping up to be Google's biggest competitor. But we wonder, after this what moves are left for Zoho?
