In case emails are an indispensable component of your correspondence with business colleagues or relatives, it may be better to use an email account with your very own personal domain name and a provider that offers support for the IMAP and POP3 email retrieval protocols, instead of resorting to a web-based service that entails restrictions with regards to the size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any program – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to examine the email messages locally at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, while with the POP3 protocol, all emails will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be kept on the email server. Furthermore, you’ll be able to use plenty of other handy options – contact groups, calendars, etc., not to mention that if there’s a temporary issue with your Internet access, you can still examine your emails since they will be on your desktop or mobile device.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

With a shared website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email software app to see your emails. We offer support for the POP3 and IMAP protocols, so you can choose either of them when you create an email account according to your personal preferences. To make things easier, you can download a small-sized file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each email account that you create. You can effortlessly set up the latter with your chosen application by simply running that file on your computer. This option represents an alternative to our webmail and the two email services are harmonized, so if you create a new folder in Outlook, for instance, it will appear both in the webmail and on any computer where the given mailbox is set up.
