As of 2015, businesses that need an email address can sign up with a provider, such as Yahoo or Google. Both have business accounts offering customizable emails and other services, which many employees can access easily to accomplish various tasks online. Different package levels are available that include important safeguards, as well as reliable service and support.
Both Yahoo and Google charge a monthly fee for business email accounts, but they also let you tailor the address to your business name. The other similarities between the two services are in the ability to add and remove users who are accessing individual accounts within the system and their safety features, such as backing up data online (via the cloud) and offering a variety of plans that give the administrator control over who can access certain information.
The plans pricing revolve around the amount of storage required and the level of complexity needed for managing the system. Google charges per user prices, while Yahoo charges a flat rate per account based on the number of email addresses. These can be paid annually or monthly, depending on the needs of the business.
Google's prices are slightly higher than Yahoo's, but both have advantages that should be considered. For example: Yahoo offers unlimited storage for its standard and premium package, while Google only offers the service on its premium account. However, Google's online tools are more robust, taking advantage of Google Drive and other apps to access calendars, create projects and make video calls.
