If you have a domain name and a web hosting plan for it, you’ll be able to create mailboxes for personal or business purposes and to set them up with email software applications such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. In the meantime, you will be able to pick one of the two popular email retrieval protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will permit you to see all messages, but they will remain on the mail server, whereas with the second one, all messages will be downloaded to the device where the email account is configured, unless you explicitly select a copy to be left on the server. Thus, you can choose if you would like all your electronic communication to be stored on a single device, or if you would rather be able to see the emails from multiple places. The second alternative is quite handy for companies where a number of employees working on separate computers need to get access to a given email account.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client software and any desktop or handheld device to access your emails if you purchase any of our cloud web hosting plans. Our mail servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that meets your needs – you can download all emails to your PC or you can keep the messages on the mail server in case you have a firm and a number of people need to gain access to them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given email account for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be set up automatically. In case you would like to use your smartphone, we have in-depth tutorials on how to set up a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-powered mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. We support both of them, so you can decide what to do with your messages – to download them on your PC or to leave them on the server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also permit different people to access the exact same mailbox – if you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will permit you to automatically set up everything in an app of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to tweak any settings manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – just follow our comprehensive tutorials for Android and iPhone.
