There are lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but using an email address with your very own personal domain name will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you won’t experience such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your emails, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up a mailbox on your mobile 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 to your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux website hosting package from our company, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the setup procedure, you can choose POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for both protocols, so it will depend on you if all email messages will be downloaded at your end or if they will remain on the server. With us, you can even set up an email account on your mobile phone regardless of its Operating System and we have exhaustive tutorials on how to perform that. To save yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an email account in Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird automatically. With our hosting plans, you can select a preferred device and application to access your email messages.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can choose between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We offer support for both, so you can decide what to do with your email messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to view them from different devices. The latter option will also enable different individuals to access the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a corporate web site on our servers, for example. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in a software app of your choosing – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook, so you won’t need to tweak any settings manually. If you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply read our detailed tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things even easier, our how-to articles include step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
If you order a virtual private server through our company, you’ll be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software app. This is valid irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll choose during the VPS order process, since we’ll set up IMAP and POP3 mail servers on the VPS in any event. You’ll be able to choose either option and, to make everything even simpler, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook – if you get the server with cPanel or with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can configure email accounts on any device without any limits, even on your mobile phone – if you commute a lot and you want to keep in touch with pals and partners. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can decide whether to download the emails or to save them on the server based on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many people will need to get access to them.
