3 FREE features for you! Domain, Privacy, Email forwarding

All XYZulu customers now have access to 3 FREE features on all new and existing domain names. What are they and why should you use them?

Domain name forwarding

We now provide the ability for you to forward your domain name to another domain name, or cloak the content of an existing web site.

Let’s use one of our valued clients as an example: Matt purchased the domain name: agile.insure Instead of having to create a new website, we point or forward that new domain to Matt’s existing site: agileinsuranceadvice.com.au for free. We can do this for you too.

Email forwarding

Jenny purchases a new domain name because it’s memorable and easy to market: joomlatutorials.com We can help Jenny create a new email address: [email protected] and forward this to her existing address @gmail.com for free.

WHOIS privacy protection

We allow you to protect your online privacy by hiding your registrant details on the public WHOIS database.

How does this work in the real world? Your name as well as your address and phone number is information that is usually made available to the public when you register a domain name. You are legally required to provide valid data for these fields. WHOIS privacy protection protects this information from people who may want to misuse it.

For example, the domain name xyzulu.hosting does NOT have WHOIS privacy enabled  xyzulu.com does. Compare the different results here:

xyzulu.hosting WHOIS

xyzulu.com WHOIS

Unlike other providers that often charge extra for this feature, XYZulu will do this for free on all supported domain names.

Do you have an existing domain name provider that is charging you for the above features? XYZulu offer free domain name migrations to our system. Start the process off here: my.xyzulu.hosting

Did you know we offer far more than just .com domain names? Please check out our previous post: Is the .com all there is?

We look forward to serving you even better in 2017!

3 Reasons why you should use Google Inbox instead of Gmail

No doubt you have heard of and are probably well acquainted with Gmail. It’s an email interface most of us have used. You may be less familiar with Google’s “other” email offer: Inbox

What makes it better than Gmail?

It’s much faster at reading/processing emails than Gmail, especially when it comes to newsletters. Inbox provides you a quick summary of the newsletter before you even open it. What exactly makes it better or different to Gmail?

  1. Inbox groups (or bundles) emails in a far more intuitive way than Gmail. This is especially useful if you receive automated emails that you later simply delete or archive. Inbox allows you to do this with a single swipe or click.
  2. Integrated into Inbox is a smart reminder system. For example, if you receive an email that you need to deal with, but not at this time, simply “snooze” the email until the time or place (yes, location is another new option in Inbox) and it will reappear in your Inbox then, or in the case of a location choice, when you arrive at that location.
  3. Inbox has smart replies built in. Have a look at it in action below:

Thought has been given to the layout of all emails on mobile as well as computers. You’ll find the interface different, but also familiar if you are familiar with using Google services.


How do I use it?

It’s simple, just visit Inbox while you are logged into your Gmail account and you will be on your way.

To see what Google themselves have to say about Inbox, visit this page: www.google.com.au/inbox/  and take the time to watch the video they have put together. There are a number of other features we have not touched on in this post, so let us know if you would like to hear more about a particular feature and we’ll be happy to explain.

It seems likely in time Gmail will evolve into Inbox, or the features will be integrated. So there is no better time to see the future of Gmail/Inbox.
