What are my email software settings

Before you can configure your email software to send and receive emails from our servers, you must:
  1. Register a domain name
  2. Purchase a cPanel hosting subscription service
  3. Create an email account on our cPanel hosting server

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

All email software and devices including Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird connect to our email servers using the exact same settings. This article is for users who are familiar with how to use their email software, and simply want to know what settings they should use to connect to our servers. If you are unsure how to use your email software, we recommend reading through our 'Email setup tutorials' article for further assistance.


TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are considered unsafe and are no longer supported. This change is inline with all major service providers who have similar plans in the first half of 2020 including Microsoft, Google, AWS and Apple.

FOR EMAIL: If you use Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, MacMail on MacOS 10.13.4 or before, IOS 4 or before or any email client running on Windows 7 you will need to upgrade beforehand to avoid issues. This may also be the case for other older email clients or operating systems. ( Will work on Non-SSL port)

FOR WEB BROWSING: If you are using a browser older than Chrome 30, Firefox 26, Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8, or Safari 7 on OS X 10.9, you will also need to upgrade your browser to avoid issues viewing any website you have hosted on our servers.


Note: The default Apple Mail (or Mac Mail) application has several known issues, including not saving settings during setup, losing settings randomly and having issues with connecting several devices to the same email account. Unfortunately these are intermittent issues with the software itself, if you encounter these we recommend switching to Thunderbird or Outlook for Mac.
