There are plenty of web-based email providers that you can resort to, but using an email account with your very own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not face such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to access your emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile 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, while with POP3, the message is downloaded to your computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to use in accordance with your preference and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is part of our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel, permits you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can use even your phone to check your emails and we’ve got a detailed 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 packages offer support for the two email retrieval protocols, so you can opt for either of them when you set up an account with an email program. You can also download auto-config files for any mailbox that you create from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you manage the semi-dedicated server. Thus, you can add any account to Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail without doing anything manually. In case you’re on the move all the time and you’d like to view your emails using a smartphone, we have added elaborate tutorials with screen-caps demonstrating how to set up a mailbox on an iPhone or an Android phone. With our semi-dedicated server plans, you can download the messages on a single device or you can leave them on the mail server, so as to be able to check your emails from multiple locations and devices.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email software app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is completely operational. Both POP3 and IMAP connections are supported by default, so you will not need to install anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will even be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will spare you time and effort if you have to set up an email account in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many messages as you wish – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which tackles the outgoing emails. With our VPS plans, you’ll be able to receive and send emails from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your phone.
