There are a lot of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email account with your own domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that supports the IMAP and POP3 email protocols, you won’t stumble upon such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your computer to access your mails, including Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can even set up an email account on your phone. The difference between the two protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the email server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your PC, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. We support both of them, so you can choose what to do with your email messages – to download them on your home computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also permit different individuals to use the same mailbox – in case you are hosting a company website on our semi-dedicated servers, for example. You can find auto-configuration files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will enable you to automatically set up everything in a client of your choice – Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail, so you won’t need to fine-tune any settings manually. If you’ve got a smartphone, you can add any email account just as easily – simply check our in-depth tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make things easier, our help articles come with step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans feature a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create an email account and set it up in an email software app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully operational. Both IMAP and POP3 connections are supported by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your Virtual Private Server comes with cPanel or with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, which will save you time and effort when you need to set up an email account in any of these applications. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you wish – the VPSs have their own SMTP server, which handles the outbound emails. With our plans, you’ll be able to receive and send email messages from any location and any device. You can set up an email account even on your phone.
