If you use an email account with your very own personal domain instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email app such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail to access and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two email retrieval protocols that you can choose from when you configure the app of your preference to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded onto your device – desktop or mobile, unless you decide to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and access the email messages from any place. You’ll also be able to see old email messages in case there’s a problem with your Internet connectivity, which is an enormous advantage over a web-based service.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting service through our company, you’ll be able to create email accounts with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software app. During the process, you can pick IMAP or POP3 as we support the two email retrieval protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded locally at your end or if they will stay on the mail server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your mobile phone irrespective of its OS and we’ve got elaborate tutorials on how to carry out that. To save yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can pick a preferred device and software application to check your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your home computer or to keep them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The latter option will also permit different people to check the very same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our semi-dedicated 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 software app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you won’t have to configure any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – just check out our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, the instructional articles contain step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
With our VPS server plans, you’ll be able to set up an unlimited number of mailboxes and to use them with any email software app on any device, as the VPSs include a pre-installed mail server that offers support for both protocols – POP3 and IMAP. This is valid with all VPS packages no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick during the order process. With cPanel and Hepsia, you will be even able to download auto-config files, which will help you create your email accounts in Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook without having to enter or modify any system information or any settings manually. You can use any other email software application to send and receive email messages as well. You can even use your phone to check your e-correspondence when you are travelling.
