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

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

With a shared plan from us, you’ll be able to use any device and any email application to check your emails. We offer support for the IMAP and POP3 protocols, so you can choose either of them when you create a mailbox in accordance with your own preferences. To make things simpler, you can download a small-sized file from your Control Panel’s Email Manager section for each mailbox that you create. You can automatically set up the latter with your chosen application by simply running that file on your PC. This option is an alternative to our webmail and the two services complement each other, so if you create a folder in Outlook, for example, it will appear both in the webmail and on any PC where the particular mailbox is set up.
