Easilly manage your email hosting experience from your online control panel (cPanel), whether you need to add a new email account, or check your mail.
You're a professional. Isn't it time your email address reflects this? A personalised email address creates a great first impression and is an easy way to build trust and promote your brand. In fact, research shows that customers are much more likely to do business with people who have a professional email address, rather than a free generic address. Our email hosting provides everything you need to successfully get your email off the ground, quickly and cost-effectively.
No matter where you are in the world, you can easilly access your email accounts using any email client of your choice (Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail etc.) or one of our three easy-to-use webmail interfaces: Roundcube, Horde and SquirrelMail.
A domain-based email address, i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org, not only looks more professional to your customers, but also helps to promote your company and website. Every time your customers receive an email from your domain-based email, they're reminded of your company name, encouraging them to visit your website and do business with you.
POP3 and IMAP are two different protocols used to access your mail on our servers.
When checking your email using POP3, your device will download the emails off our server, then delete those emails off the server. This then stores all emails locally on that computer rather than on our system. Once emails have been received onto one computer, they can't be received onto another computer, so there is no syncing across devices. It also means that should your emails be lost from your device, and you have not made a local backup, you will have no way of retrieving those emails again.
IMAP is a more popular option. With this method, all emails kept on the servers and your device(s) syncs with our servers in order for you to receive and send mail. This means that you can view all emails on multiple devices, including via our webmail.
Yes, our email hosting is compatible with all email applications, mobile and desktop.
