There are lots of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own personal domain will grant you more credibility if you have a company, for instance, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email protocols, you will not encounter such problems and you’ll be able to use any software program on your computer to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Thunderbird or Outlook. You can even set up an email account on your mobile phone. 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 personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

If you buy a Linux shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up with any email app. During the process, you can pick POP3 or IMAP as we offer support for both email protocols, so it will depend on you if all emails will be downloaded at your end or if they will stay on the email server. With us, you can even set up a mailbox on your phone irrespective of its Operating System and we’ve included detailed tutorials on how to do that. To save time, you can also download and run our auto-configuration files to set up an email account in Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail automatically.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email 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 emails – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the mail server and to check them from multiple devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to access the very same mailbox – in case you are hosting a corporate website on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in a software app of your choosing – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to modify any settings manually. In case you’ve got a mobile phone, you can set up any email account just as easily – simply read our exhaustive tutorials for iPhone and Android.
