Hello, I have a company set up with bluehost and a new idea I am working on is a basic e-mail hosting plan. If it works out I plan to expand this idea if bluehost can accept.
I will basically set up another domain mymail.com (I know its probably taken, it's just an example) and then have users sign up for a fee each year to have an x amount of hosting space, x amount of bandwidth etc at that domain. E.g
firstname.lastname@example.org / 1 Gig e-mail box space / pop3 / spam protection etc
My questions are as follows:
1. Am I going the right way about it? If I set up a new domain e.g mymail.com and point it to my main bluehost account domain, can I set e-mail boxes for mymail.com from my main account?
2. What software would I use to sign up users for an e-mail address and possibly let them sign in via the webpage as well as via their e-mail client?
3. If I set up each box, could I restrict / monitor how much bandwidth a user has each month.
Hope someone can help as I'm new to this field, but I really want to make it work.
