There’re many web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having a mailbox with your own personal domain name will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, you will not face such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your PC to check your email accounts, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your mobile device. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the mail server, while with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any mobile or desktop device to check your email messages if you get one of our Linux shared web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that answers your needs – you can download all emails on your PC or you can store the emails on the email server in case you are running a company and different employees need to be able to access them, for instance. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that email account will be set up automatically. If you want to use your phone, we’ve got comprehensive tutorials on how to configure a mailbox on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company, you’ll be able to check your emails from any device with ease. In case you’re non-stop on the road, you can check our elaborate tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and if you have a portable or a desktop computer, you can download our auto-configuration files for Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook and set up a mailbox with your preferred software program without needing to do anything manually. As we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you can pick the email delivery protocol that meets your interests best – you may want to download personal emails locally at your end, whereas in case you use our email services for commercial purposes, you should choose IMAP, so as to allow many people to check a certain email account from different computers.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

If you have picked our Hepsia hosting Control Panel or cPanel during the signup process, you’ll have access to auto-config files for Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook, which will set up your mailboxes automatically in any of these apps on your personal computer. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll exert total control over your electronic correspondence irrespective of where you are or what desktop or mobile device you’re using.
