.BIZ Baron Launches Free Service at Email.biz That Lets You Check All of Your Email Accounts in One Place - Also Offers Premium Addresses for $8 Annually

You've probably all heard of the Domain King (Rick Schwartz), but you might not be familiar with a guy who could stake a good claim to the title - .Biz Baron - if he wanted to. India's Anshul Goyal, whose successful development company, Guava Softs Pvt Ltd., has thousands of top tier .biz domains, including some of the best one-word generics as well as 1, 2 and 3-character domains like z.biz, up.biz and pet.biz. While the company sells names from its premium portfolio (that also includes .com, .net and .in domains), it is also a major developer of websites based on .biz domains.

Most of Goyal's attention these days is focused on the launch of a time saving new free email service at exactly the location you would expect from him - Email.biz. The new site gives users a single log-in to access all of their email accounts. To generate revenue the site also offers the option of selecting a memorable premium email address tied to one of the company's 16,000 top tier domains, including

surnames and category defining generic names like Fly.biz, Stock.biz, Surfing.biz. etc. The cost for a premium name, for example Anshul@7.biz,  is $8 a year. 

The free addresses (your name @ email.biz) come with 10 GB of standard storage space with other options, like unlimited storage, a 200 MB attachment size and SMS alerts for your important email can unlocked at nominal additional prices per year.

And why .biz you are likely to ask? ".biz has always been my favorite extension after .com and .net," Goyal said. ".biz is a 3 letter extension that is more than 10 years old and almost 2.3 million .biz domains are already out there in the global market. If we look at domain counts, it shows .biz is the 2nd fastest growing TLD after .com with a growth rate of 6.1% over the past year." 

While Email.biz was just launched Goyal has been planning the service for years now. "The idea came into my mind around six years back , when I needed to check my corporate email and no good source was available," Goyal said. "So I decided to start working on it and to provide a clean and fully loaded features interface that would work from almost any POP3 or IMAP4 

email server like Yahoo, Google, AOL, etc , that people can use even if they are not registered with us (they just sign in with the address and password for whatever service's account they want to access)."

"The second part - personalized premium  email addresses - was motivated by the increasing demand for personalized and premium products," Goyal siad. "People are spending lots of money on mobile numbers , car (license tag) numbers , landline phone numbers , even a good house 

number. Now people can to make the shortest address (like z@z.biz) or the name you select @ your surname or @ an adress that reflects your passion." 

Goyal said there a lot of new updates and innovations still in pipeline for Email.biz.  The company's other developed sites include Profit.biz, a financial services information portal where Guava Soft also offers premium domains for sale, and Up.biz, a site that offers complete software solutions, portal development, animation, TV ads, tablet & mobile apps.
