There’re a lot of web-based email service providers that you can resort to, but having an email with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you have a business, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limits on the size of the attachments that you can receive or send. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not come across such problems and you will be able to use any software program on your computer to check your email messages, 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 server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your personal computer, unless you set up the program in such a way as to keep a copy on the server.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create email accounts 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 email protocols, as we support both, so you can decide which one to rely on based on your preferences and the purpose of your email account – you may choose to download all emails if you’ve got a personal account and to store the emails on the server – in case you’ve got a business account, for example. The Email Manager tool, which is integrated into our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small-sized file, so as to set up a mailbox with an email app – Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird. You can use even your smartphone to check your emails and we have a comprehensive tutorial on how to carry out this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
