As a small business currently using Zoho, you may be interested in exploring Yukthi Mail as a viable alternative for email hosting services that offer better economic value.

Even if you’re using a different email hosting service, it’s worth considering how Yukthi Mail compares to other email hosting service providers in India, including Zoho. Some of our Google Workspace customers have opted for a hybrid solution that combines Google Workspace and Yukthi Mail to maximize their cost savings, and the same can be done with Zoho.

Check out our video comparing Google Workspace vs. Yukthi Mail, where we discuss how a hybrid option can help maximize cost savings for one of our customers.

Key Factors for Choosing an Email Hosting Service for Small Businesses


Zoho offers a variety of features that may be useful for small businesses, such as cloud storage, video conferencing, and project management tools. However, some businesses may not require all of these features, which can make the service more expensive than necessary. In contrast, Yukthi Mail provides customized plans that allow businesses to select only the features they need, resulting in cost savings.


Both Zoho and Yukthi Mail offer high levels of security to protect businesses’ sensitive information. However, Yukthi Mail’s security measures are audited by multiple customers in the banking and finance sector, which demonstrates our commitment to maintaining a secure email service. Our email hosting service uses encryption, firewalls, and antivirus software to prevent unauthorized access and data breaches.

Reliability and Uptime

Uptime is crucial for businesses that rely on email for communication with customers and colleagues. While Zoho’s uptime is generally reliable, Yukthi Mail has a proven track record of maintaining uptime that matches or exceeds that of Zoho. This can give businesses peace of mind that their email service will be reliable.


Yukthi Mail takes pride in providing responsive and effective customer support to help businesses resolve any issues they may encounter with their email service. We offer support through phone, chat, and email, and our team is available 24/7 to assist with any problems or questions.


Yukthi Mail’s pricing model is based on total storage space, which can be more cost-effective for businesses that require a large amount of storage. In contrast, Zoho’s pricing is based on a per-user basis, which can make the service more expensive as the number of users increases. Furthermore, we have had customers who switched to our email service from Zoho and saved anywhere from 50% to 75%, which can be a significant cost savings for small businesses.

In summary, while Zoho offers many useful features for small businesses, Yukthi Mail’s customized plans, proven uptime, and cost-effective pricing make it a strong contender for small businesses in need of email hosting services.
