In a nutshell, with hosted by 3CX you spend much less time and money on installing and managing your instance. Our 4 top reasons why you should make the switch:
- Eliminate OS Admin: Never have to deal with complex OS, network and system management – 3CX will do it for you!
- Automatic updates: No need to worry about 3CX updates, we apply them for you and troubleshoot any issues.
- Remote-enable your teams: Have your teams up and running remotely in no time with straightforward support of remote locations and effortless merging of remote PBXs.
- Cut costs: Currently paying your hosting provider a monthly fee? New users can get 1 year free hosting on us! If you are already a 3CX customer, switch to hosted by 3CX and get free hosting up until end Q1 2021.
Too Good to be True? Try it Out Now!
Current on-premise and self-hosted installations can switch to hosted by 3CX directly from the customer portal. Simply click on “Switch to Hosted” under “My Subscriptions” and follow the steps. You will be prompted to take a backup of your current 3CX instance and upload it. Once uploaded, the PBX will automatically be upgraded to Update 6.
For those on V15.5 and below, you will first need to upgrade to V15.5 SP6 and follow the procedure above.
