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

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to use depending on your preference and the purpose of the account – you may decide to download all emails in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – if you have a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up an email account with an email software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to check your email messages and we have 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 Hosting

You can pick between the IMAP and the POP3 email retrieval protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your emails – to download them to your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to access them from multiple devices. The latter option will also permit different individuals to access the same email account – in case you’re hosting a corporate website 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 automatically set up everything in a client of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to modify anything manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply follow our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even simpler, our instructional articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting packages come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email client as soon as your VPS is ready. We support both POP3 and IMAP connections by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these applications. You will also be able to send out as many email messages as you like – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound emails. With our Virtual Private Server packages, you’ll be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can configure a mailbox even on your mobile phone.
