There’re many web-based mail service providers that you can use, but using an email account with your very own personal domain name will give you more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based email services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can send or receive. In case you use an email service that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, you will not run into such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to access your email accounts, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. 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 to your personal computer, unless you configure the program in such a way as to store a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create email accounts with any domain name hosted in your account and to set them up on any device. During the setup process, you can select between the POP3 and the IMAP email delivery protocols, as we support both, so you can choose which one to rely on based on your preference and the purpose of your account – you may want to download all email messages if you’ve got a personal account and to keep the emails on the email server – in case you have a business account, for instance. The Email Manager tool, which is built into our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, enables you to download and run a small file, so as to set up an email account with an email application – Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. You can even use your smartphone to get your email messages and we have added an exhaustive tutorial on how to do this on an iPhone or an Android phone.
