There’re plenty of web-based email service 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 business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to check your email messages, including Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. 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 at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to save the emails on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software application – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can even use your phone to access your email messages and we’ve included an exhaustive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server through us, you will be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email program. This is valid regardless of the Control Panel that you’ll opt for upon signup, as we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS anyhow. You will be able to select either option and, to make everything even easier, you will be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your mobile phone – if you commute a lot and you’d like to keep in touch with buddies and colleagues. With our services, you can decide whether to download the emails or to store them on the server depending on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many people will need to be able to access them.
