My company wants to transition from GoDaddy (for obvious reasons), but they don't want to pay the premium for Exchange as many of Exchange's features won't be needed. I have been trying to find a company that provides better service/stability as most of our emails take between 30 min and up to half for transit.
Currently, I have been looking at Rackspace as they provide a good SLA incentive (re-imbursement/pro-rate in the event of outage or service disruption). But I was also looking at HostGator as they have been around for a while and have a decent history.
That said, am I just trading one headache for another? I have been hard-pressed to find any independent reviews that provide these companies with anything above 3 stars. If all we are looking for is increased stability, email transfer speed, what are my options? I don't want to pay $10+/user if I am not using the collaborative features.
Thanks in advance for all the advice.
