Dropmyemail was founded by John Fearon after his first startup Eatads.com had a hosting failure. Fearon told youstory.in after they lost all their data he had an idea about a cloud based website backup called dropmysite. Dropmysite is a simple enough idea, giving website owners a cloud based backup of their website on established intervals. The next evolution was dropmyemail.com which was launched on March 1, 2012.
Since March 1st they’ve added over 600,000 users which is a faster adoption rate than DropBox and Pinterest.
“We now have over 600K signups since our launch of Dropmyemail.com from around the world. We began offering the freemium service on 1st March, 2012 and within days we saw great traction in new user adoption and the coveted hockey stick growth kicked in, the company has been adding close to 15,000 new users per day since then. India is a very big market for us with around 20% of our users coming from India.” Fearon told yourstory.in
There are some major benefits to Dropmyemail’s fermium service. The first of course is that it’s free. Users can easily sign into the service using a Facebook or Google account. From there the users emails will be backed up to the cloud every 24 hours. Fearon also insists that they have no access to the data stored within the email accounts and they also offer migration service so you can back up and move your emails from one account to another.
It’s the simplicity and ease of the service that is attracting more than 15,000 new users a day.
