I'm guessing you're trying to run a free webmail service on the cheap? Good luck with that.
MostAll competent/reputable hosts are either going to charge by number of accounts, or by amount of disk space. Both the sites you've linked to are offering what is basically "unlimited" hosting, which should be a huge warning flag - especially when they'd like you to prepay for a decade.
You could get a server and administer your own mailserver and learn what you're doing... or just do what 90% of the wannabe email hosts do, and get a Cpanel reseller account from some kid somewhere, and hope for the best.
BigRock is a part of Directi group of business, they are not new. They've been around for years. If you are thinking about buying unlimited email hosting for providing some sort of service then carefully read their TOS. For any type of shared hosting you cannot send more than 500 emails per domains per hour. If my assumptions are correct, you should search for Reseller email hosting or Private label email service that should fit your need.
If you put your exact requirement and purpose for unlimited emails with your budget in mind, people here on WHT should be able to help you or contact you for the same. Good luck with your hunt
i'm uncertain about the budget. i can't extend it no doubt keeping it the lowest possible
i'm just trying to setup a community based website and provide the members with an email service. that's all. of course, hoping to get some revenue with the google ads. I figured, bigrock and b4uindia isn't what i'm looking for.
I'm wondering about the baby plan by hostgator. i would prefer to have my users register/sign up automatically though. i doubt i can add google ads there.
I can't specify how many users would sign up. probably 1000+ this year but would expect more. I dont wanna be paying per user either.
You can easily build a community based website using Joomla CMS with its community builder Add-on. You can do Automatic User Registration, create profiles and much more. You can provide messaging service within your community website. And Yes you can put your AdSense.
But Free Email Service is what's in your mind then forget about Shared Hosting you should go for a Cheap or ultra Cheap VPS for time being and then switch over when you start generating revenue. On a VPS you can achieve this in many different ways. I have seen buyvm providing cheap and reliable unmanaged VPS at the cost of a shared hosting.
I don't think it would be possible. Please check HostGator T&C for your site before you signup or anything. I'm sure they will be limited in some way or another. Don't get fooled by the "Unlimited" thingy that they advertise.

@hackerzlab: don't waste your time, you need at least a VPS to start. If you haven't read what others have said more than once I'll do it again for you "most shared hosting plans limit the emails per domain per hour" , having this peculiar limitation, your free service will be an unusable service when you reach a couple of accounts. Things will get even better when spammers start signing up
