In case you have an email with your own domain and not a third-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your email accounts. The advantage of using such applications is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email retrieval protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave a copy on the email 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 email account on multiple devices and see the messages from any place. You will also be able to examine old emails if there’s a predicament with your Internet connectivity, which is a huge advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the emails on the mail server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, allows you to download and run a small auto-configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email software app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your phone to access your emails and we’ve got a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use a semi-dedicated server plan with our company, you’ll be able to access your email messages from any device with ease. If you’re on the road all the time, you can see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and if you use a portable or a desktop PC, you can download our auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail and set up a mailbox with your preferred program without the need to do anything manually. As we support both IMAP and POP3, you can pick the email protocol that matches your interests most – you may want to download personal emails at your end, whereas if you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to enable plenty of people to check a given mailbox from separate locations.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our VPS hosting service irrespective of the package or the hosting Control Panel that you select. Each VPS comes with its own pre-installed mail server, so you will be able to create as many mailboxes as you wish, to send and to receive an unlimited number of email messages and to use your preferred email program and even a mobile phone. If you have picked our Hepsia Control Panel or cPanel during the VPS order procedure, you will gain access to auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our VPS plans, you’ll have full authority over your e-communication no matter where you are or what handheld or desktop device you are using.
