There are lots of web-based email service providers that you can use, but having an email with your own domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, 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 locally at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto 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 Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any desktop or mobile device to access your emails if you purchase one of our Linux shared website hosting service. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that fits your demands – you can download all emails to your home computer or you can keep the messages on the email server if you are running a company and a number of people need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a particular mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop email clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You will simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you want to use your smartphone, we have comprehensive tutorials on how to set up an email account on an Android- or an iOS-driven handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server package with us, you will be able to access your emails from any device effortlessly. If you’re travelling all the time, you can examine our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and if you use a notebook or a desktop computer, you can download our auto-configuration files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail and set up an email account with your preferred email software application without the need to do anything manually. Since we support both IMAP and POP3, you can pick the email delivery protocol that fulfills your requirements most – you may decide to download personal email messages at your end, while in case you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should go with IMAP, so as to allow plenty of people to access a certain mailbox from different computers.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server through us, you will be able to create unlimited mailboxes with any domain hosted on the server and to set them up with any email application. This is valid regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you will choose during the VPS order process, as we will set up POP3 and IMAP mail servers on the VPS in any case. You will be able to choose either option and, to make things even easier, you’ll be able to download auto-configuration files for Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird – if you get the VPS with cPanel or with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create email accounts on any device without any limitations, even on your mobile phone – if you travel a lot and you would like to stay in touch with mates and colleagues. With our services, you can choose whether to download the emails or to keep them on the server based on what you will use the email accounts for and on how many people will need to be able to access them.
