In case you’ve got a domain and a web hosting account for it, you’ll be able to create email accounts for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with apps such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. During the process, you’ll be able to opt for one of the two popular email delivery protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first protocol will enable you to view all messages, but they will remain on the mail server, whereas with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded onto the device where the email account is configured, unless you specifically select a copy to be stored on the server. Thus, you can choose if you want all your electronic communication to be kept on a single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the emails from numerous places. The latter option is quite convenient for businesses where different people working on separate machines need to access a specific email account.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted in your account and to set them up with any email software application. During the process, you can choose POP3 or IMAP as we support the two email retrieval protocols, so it will depend on you if all email messages will be downloaded at your end or if they will stay on the server. With our company, you can even set up a mailbox on your smartphone regardless of its Operating System and we have added in-depth tutorials on how to do that. To spare yourself time, you can also download and run our auto-config files to set up an account in Thunderbird, Apple Mail or Outlook automatically. With our shared hosting plans, you can choose a preferred device and software application to access your emails.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server package with us, you’ll be able to view your email messages from any device with ease. In case you are non-stop on the road, you can see our detailed tutorials for iPhone and Android smartphones, and in case you have a desktop or a portable PC, you can download our auto-configuration files for Apple Mail, Outlook and Thunderbird and set up an email account with your desired email client without having to do anything manually. Since we offer support for both POP3 and IMAP, you can choose the email retrieval protocol that suits your needs most – you may decide to download personal emails locally at your end, while in case you use our email services for business purposes, you should opt for IMAP, so as to allow multiple individuals to access a given mailbox from separate devices.
