If you use an email address with your very own personal domain name instead of a 3rd-party one, you’ll be able to use an email application such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook to check and manage your mailboxes. The benefit 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 choose from when you configure the app of your choosing to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first protocol, all messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you choose to leave a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server at all times, so you can set up the account on multiple devices and see the messages from any location. You’ll also be able to view old emails if there is a predicament with your Internet access, which is an immense advantage over a web-based email service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer will permit you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup procedure, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email retrieval protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to use depending on your preference and the purpose of the email account – you may choose to download all email messages in case you’ve got a personal account and to store the emails on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is included in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email software program – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. You can even use your smartphone to access your emails and we’ve 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

You can select between the IMAP and the POP3 protocols in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both, so you can choose what to do with your messages – to download them to your home computer or to keep them on the mail server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to check the very same mailbox – if you’re hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in an app of your preference – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you will not have to tweak any settings manually. In case you have a mobile phone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply check out our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything even easier, the help articles contain step-by-step screen-caps.
