There are many web-based email service providers that you can use, but using an email with your own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you are running a business, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your computer to check your email messages, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed locally at your end, but remains on the server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on in accordance with your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all emails if you have a personal account and to leave the messages on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email application – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can use even your smartphone to access your emails and we’ve added an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can choose between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them to your PC or to leave them on the mail server and to view them from multiple devices. The second option will also permit multiple individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in a software application of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to fine-tune anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just follow our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, the instructional articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
