There’re numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your PC to access your mailboxes, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a shared web hosting plan through our company, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the setup procedure, you can pick POP3 or IMAP as we support the two email protocols, so it will be up to you if all email messages will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the server. With our company, you can even set up an email account on your mobile phone irrespective of its OS and we have added detailed tutorials on how to carry out that. To spare time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an account in Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird automatically. With our services, you can choose a desired device and app to examine your emails.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them to your home computer or to keep them on the server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to use the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company web site on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in a software program of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just examine our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything easier, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
