We are going to move the Rackspace Email add-on to $1/mailbox from December (so at cost).
We don’t want email to be a hurdle for people who want to come on-board.

As a former Rackspace Reseller, I like the fact that Cloudways allows us to purchase a mailbox at a time.
Bob - what you don't realize is, there is a minimum monthly for Rackspace Email reseller, at least $150/mo. So that is why they can provide phone support.
So in this case, Cloudways is offering a highly mature, redundant and secure email service at an affordable rate.
Plus, their chat/email support responds quickly enough. That as a former Rackspace customer, there is no difference.
After some difficulties with Cloudflare, we have spoken now with Sucuri (https://sucuri.net/). They offer malware removal, website firewall (providing DDoS protection among other things, requires DNS redirection to point to their firewalls) and site scanning (via local agent). All features independent (we can offer all or some).
We are thinking that a better approach to solving our customers problems when it comes to security and performance will be to offer (as add-ons) Sucuri (security centric and very focused on our most common apps) and MaxCDN (pure CDN focused on performance).
Any one has had experience with Sucuri? We have already tested (and in talks with them) and looks very promising.
Let us know thoughts on this (Sucuri + MaxCDN) approach (vs Cloudfront). We know this is well overdue and want to get it rolling.
