If you use an email address with your own personal domain name and not a 3rd-party one, you will be able to use an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to check and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as calendars and address books. There are two different email protocols that you can select from when you configure the application of your liking to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded on your device – desktop or mobile, unless you opt to save a copy on the server. With the second protocol, the messages will be displayed at your end, but they will stay on the server all the time, so you can set up the account on numerous devices and check the email messages from any location. You’ll also be able to examine old email messages if there’s an issue with your Internet connectivity, which is a big advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to see your email messages. We support the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, so you can opt for either one of them when you create a mailbox depending on your personal preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized configuration file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you create. You can easily set up the latter with your preferred application by simply running that file on your PC. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services are harmonized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given email account is configured.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We offer support for both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to store them on your home computer or to leave them on the server and to check them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple people to use the exact same email account – in case you’re 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 Control Panel, which will enable you to set up everything automatically in a software program of your choice – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, so you will not need to tweak any settings manually. If you have a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply see our exhaustive tutorials for Android and iPhone. To make everything even easier, our help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Both email delivery protocols, IMAP and POP3, are available with our Linux VPS servers regardless of the plan or the hosting Control Panel that you pick. Each VPS comes with a pre-configured email server, so you will be able to set up as many mailboxes as you like, to send and to receive unlimited emails and to use your preferred email software app and even a mobile phone. If you have chosen our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the order procedure, you’ll be bestowed with access to auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook, which will set up your email accounts automatically in any of these applications on your computer. With our VPS plans, you will exert absolute command over your email correspondence regardless of where you are or what mobile or desktop device you are using.
