Before you can configure email software to send and receive emails from our servers, you must:

  1. Purchase a cPanel or Cloud hosting subscription service
  2. Create an email account on our cPanel or Cloud hosting services
  3. Ensure you have your incoming, outgoing, username and password details ready to go

Once you've done this, you may configure your email software to connect to the email account you have created on our servers.

Note: As a courtesy to our customers, we provide online tutorials on how to configure various email software. However, our staff are unable to provide support on how to use your Android smartphone. For further assistance in using Email on your Android phone, please refer to your specific phone brand's website.

    Our servers support both POP and IMAP. Select IMAP or POP from the mail account types, depending on your preference. To learn more about the difference between the two, read our POP or IMAP support page. For this tutorial we will be setting up a POP account, but the IMAP set up is very similar and will request the same information.
