There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email address with your own 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 limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to access your mails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. 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 onto your computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to make use of based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the email server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email app – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to check your emails and we have included an exhaustive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer support for both email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you set up an email account with an email software app. You can also download auto-configuration files for any account that you set up from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without needing to do anything manually. If you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to view your email messages using a mobile phone, we have in-depth tutorials with screen-caps clarifying how to configure an email account on an iPhone or an Android mobile phone. With our services, you can download the messages to one single device or you can keep them on the email server, so as to be able to check your messages from multiple devices and locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to create unlimited email accounts with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email client software. This is valid irrespective of the Control Panel that you will opt for during the VPS order process, as we’ll install POP3 and IMAP email servers on the VPS anyhow. You’ll be able to select either option and, to make things even easier, you will be able to download auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You can configure mailboxes on any device without any limitations, even on your mobile phone – if you commute a lot and you’d like to remain in touch with friends and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the email messages or to store them on the server depending on what you’ll use the accounts for and on how many individuals will need to access them.
