In case you use an email account with your own domain name instead of a third-party one, you’ll be able to make use of an email application such as Apple Mail, Outlook or Thunderbird to access and manage your email messages. The advantage of using such apps is that they also offer other features, such as address books and calendars. There are two email protocols that you can choose from when you set up the app of your choice to access your mailbox – POP3 and IMAP. With the first one, all email messages that are received will be downloaded to your device – mobile or desktop, unless you decide to save a copy on the mail server. With the second protocol, the email messages will be displayed locally at your end, but they will remain on the server at all times, so you can set up the email account on multiple devices and check the messages from any place. You will also be able to view old email messages in case there’s a problem with your Internet access, which is an immense advantage over a web-based service.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use any email client software and any device to access your emails if you get any of our cloud website hosting plans. Our email servers offer support for both email delivery protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that fulfills your requirements – you can download all email messages to your personal computer or you can store the emails on the email server in case you have a company and a number of employees need to gain access to them, for example. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a certain mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Outlook. You’ll simply have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be set up automatically. If you’d rather use your phone, we’ve included exhaustive tutorials on how to configure an email account on an Android- or an iOS-powered handheld device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can pick between the POP3 and the IMAP email protocols if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. We offer support for both of them, so you can decide what to do with your emails – to save them to your personal computer or to leave them on the email server and to access them from different devices. The second option will also allow multiple individuals to use the very same email account – if you are hosting a company site on our servers, for instance. You can find auto-config files in the Email Manager section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which will allow you to automatically set up everything in an email software application of your choice – Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird, so you won’t have to fine-tune anything manually. If you have a mobile phone, you can set up any mailbox just as easily – just check out our comprehensive tutorials for iPhone and Android. To make everything simpler, our help articles contain step-by-step screenshots.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with a pre-installed email server, so you can host a domain name, then create a mailbox and set it up in an email app as soon as your Virtual Private Server is fully operational. We support both IMAP and POP3 connections by default, so you won’t have to install anything manually. If your VPS comes with our Hepsia Control Panel or with cPanel, you will even be able to download auto-config files for Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail, which will spare you time and energy if you need to set up a mailbox in any of these apps. You will also be able to send as many email messages as you like – the VPS accounts have their own SMTP server, which takes care of the outbound emails. With our Virtual Private Server plans, you’ll be able to send and receive email messages from any location and any device. You can create an email account even on your smartphone.
