Why do I need a web hosting subscription for email?

A long time ago, email and websites were thought of as being virtually the same thing. A domain tied everything together and that was that. Things are different today, however most web hosting companies still offer web hosting packages with email included. In order for our customers to be able to compare apples with apples, we include commodity POP mailboxes with our website hosting. Bundling the two saves money, completes the product, centralizes your billing and support and allows us to be competitive.

We do however plan to offer POP mailboxes with no hosting plan sometime in the near future.
