In case you use a mailbox with your own personal domain name instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to use an email app such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird to access and manage your emails. The advantage of using such apps is that you can also take advantage of other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can select from when you set up the application of your liking to access your email account – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to save a copy on the email server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and view the messages from any place. You will also be able to examine old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet connection, which is an enormous advantage over web-based services.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on in accordance with your preference and the purpose of the account – you may want to download all email messages if you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the mail server – if you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small auto-config file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to access your email messages and we have added a comprehensive tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use a semi-dedicated server plan with us, you will be able to access your emails from any device without any difficulty. If you’re non-stop on the move, you can check our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android phones, and in case you have a desktop computer or a laptop, you can download our auto-config files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook and set up an email account with your desired application without having to do anything manually. Since we support both IMAP and POP3, you can pick the email delivery protocol that fulfills your demands most – you may decide to download personal emails locally at your end, whereas if you use our services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to allow many individuals to access a given mailbox from different computers.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS
If you get a virtual private server through us, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of email accounts with any domain name hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email application. This is valid irrespective of the Control Panel that you will pick during the VPS order process, since we’ll install POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS in all cases. You will be able to pick either option and, to make things even easier, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create mailboxes on any device without any restrictions, even on your mobile phone – if you travel a lot and you want to stay in touch with friends and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can choose whether to download the email messages or to leave them on the mail server depending on what you will use the email accounts for and on how many individuals will need access to them.
