A Web hosting company - Companies like Verio and WebHosting.com provide a classic ASP scenario -- virtual Web hosting. These companies provide hardware, software, bandwidth and people to host Web sites for companies and individuals. Typically, they charge something like $15 to $30 per month for the service, and may host hundreds of accounts on a single machine.
An e-mail provider - A Web hosting company usually provides some sort of e-mail service with your Web hosting account. There are two other alternatives:
Free services such as Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail
E-mail server ASPs who run exchange servers, POP servers or IMAP4 servers and distribute them on a monthly-fee basis - For example, a company in the Raleigh area called Inter-path offers a complete e-mail solution at a rate of $8 per month per account (as of 4/10/2000).
The advantage of the second approach is that the e-mail address uses your company's domain name.
A fax providerE-fax provides a free fax service that delivers faxes to your e-mail box. This is a classic example of a free ASP.
