In case email messages are a key component of your communication with business colleagues or family members, it would be better to use an email address with your own domain name and a provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, rather than relying on a web-based email service that entails restrictions as to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to check your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP email protocol, you will be able to examine the emails at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the mail server. Besides, you’ll be able to take advantage of lots of other handy options – calendars, contact groups, etc., not to mention that if there’s a brief issue with your Internet service, you can still view your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create mailboxes with any domain hosted under 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 offer support for both, so you can choose which one to use according to your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may want to download all email messages in case you have a personal account and to keep the messages on the email server – if you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is integrated into our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized configuration file, so as to set up an email account with an email client – Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook. You can use even your mobile phone to get your email messages and we have an in-depth tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server through us, you’ll be able to create an unlimited number of mailboxes with any domain hosted on the VPS and to set them up with any email client software. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you will pick during the VPS order process, as we’ll set up IMAP and POP3 email servers on the VPS in any case. You will be able to select either option and, to make everything even easier, you will be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you order the server with cPanel or with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create mailboxes on any device without any limitations, even on your mobile phone – if you travel a lot and you would like to keep in touch with friends and associates. With our Virtual Private Servers, you can select whether to download the email messages or to keep them on the server depending on what you will use the mailboxes for and on how many individuals will need access to them.
