There are numerous web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a business, 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. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you won’t come across such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your mailboxes, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded to your personal 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
You will be able to use any email client and any device to check your emails if you purchase one of our Linux web hosting services. Our mail servers support both email delivery protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that answers your demands – you can download all email messages to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the email server in case you are running a company and different employees need to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will only need to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you prefer to use your smartphone, we’ve added exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-based mobile device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 email protocols if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. We support both, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to store them on your personal computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also enable different people to use the very same email account – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. 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 an application of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not have to configure anything manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can set up any email account just as easily – just see our elaborate tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make things easier, our educational articles come with step-by-step screenshots.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
If you order a virtual private server through our company, you will be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain name hosted on the server and to set them up with any email software application. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ll select during the signup procedure, since we will install POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS in any event. You will be able to choose either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You can create mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your smartphone – if you travel a lot and you’d like to remain in touch with pals and partners. With us, you can choose whether to download the email messages or to save them on the mail server based on what you’ll use the email accounts for and on how many individuals will need to access them.
