What is shared hosting?
Shared hosting is a hosting environment where multiple users share the same server resources to power their hosting features such as website, email, database, storage, DNS and more. This reduces the cost of hosting to make it affordable and yet maintain its reliability when resources are equally and fairly shared.
Shared hosting servers are designed to cater such a need where all users' data are isolated from one another even though they share the same server resource, this enhances the security of all shared hosting accounts.
What is POP3 and IMAP?
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are email protocols that you may choose when configuring your email account in an email application (EG. MS Outlook, Windows Live Mail or others) on a computer or devices such as mobile devices or tablets.
During the setup procedure, you may come to a stage where you have to decide between POP3 or IMAP setup.
POP3 protocol downloads all email content into your email application, you can view downloaded emails even when you are working offline and store new emails in the OUTBOX ready to be delivered when you are back online.
Users may choose to remove the email from the server once it is being downloaded to save hosting space or configure to leave a copy of the downloaded email for any number of days on the mail server.
IMAP protocol synchronize the email content between your email application and the mail server, your email application must be always online for you to view your email contents. Email contents between your email application on all devices and the webmail are the same because they all synchronized their contents from the mail server. Emails are never downloaded to your computer, they are always kept in the mail server ready to be synchronize to all your email applications once it is being access.
Supported Email Apps, OS and Devices
You can setup your email account on any email application on any devices that supports POP3 or IMAP for incoming and SMTP for outgoing email protocols.
This allows you to directly access your email account without the need to always enter its username and password because the username and password are saved in the email application.
All popular email applications support POP3, IMAP and SMTP protocols, which means you can setup your email accounts on any of your desired email applications on any devices.
