There are many web-based mail service providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your own domain will give you more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email delivery protocols, you won’t face such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your personal computer to access your email messages, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. 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 on your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting service from us, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the setup procedure, you can select IMAP or POP3 as we support both protocols, so it will be up to you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will remain on the server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone regardless of its OS and we have elaborate tutorials on how to carry out that. To save yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook automatically. With our hosting plans, you can pick a desired device and software app to check your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to store them on your PC or to keep them on the mail server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to access the very same mailbox – in case you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to set up everything automatically in a program of your preference – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually. In case you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply check our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, the educational articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Both protocols, POP3 and IMAP, are available with our VPS service irrespective of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you choose. Each VPS includes a pre-configured mail server, so you will be able to set up as many mailboxes as you like, to receive and to send unlimited messages and to use your preferred email client and even a smartphone. In case you’ve picked cPanel or our Hepsia hosting Control Panel upon signup, you will be provided with access to auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your PC. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll exert complete authority over your email communication irrespective of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you’re using.
