There’re a lot of web-based email providers that you can use, but having an email address with your own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are restrictions on the size of the attachments that you can send or receive. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email delivery protocols, you will not bump into such problems and you’ll be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your emails, including Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. 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 at your end, but remains on the mail server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded onto your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to leave a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted under your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP protocols, as we offer support for both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may decide to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to leave the messages on the mail server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager, which is built into our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up an email account with an email program – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your mobile phone to view your email messages and we have added an elaborate tutorial on how to perform this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
