In order for you to use your email with these applications you need to set it up. With this guide, I will show you step by step how to set it up for you.

How to start

1/ Please log into your client area.
2/ At the top of the client area, where the blue bar runs across, click into “Services” -> “My Services” 
3/ Click into your designated Hosting Plan.
4/ Click into cPanel (Top-left hand corner).
5/ Go to Email Accounts (Click the email accounts icon in the icon menu).
At this stage you should see your email accounts, unless you have no email accounts then you can create one from there on. When you find the email account you wish to connect to the email app, click “Connect Devices”, followed by “Set Up Mail Client”.
This should bring you into a page with “Mail Client Manual Settings”. You should have two boxes, one in Blue and the other one in Orange. The blue one should have the header “Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)”. For the set up we will be using the details in this box.

Some important notes before we begin 

  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
​​
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.

  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.

Important:  This only applies to customers hosted on cPanel.

Secure or Not Secure?

Secure SSL/TLS settings are recommended, but if the verification with Outlook isn’t successful, please use the not recommended settings.

How Do I Enable SMTP Authentication?

An example: Microsoft Outlook® 2016 (PC)
1. From the “File” menu, choose “Account Settings”, click once and then click onto “Server Settings”.
2. Click “Outgoing mail” in blue font and a menu should appear.
3. Make sure that “My outgoing (SMTP) server requires authentication” box is ticked like in the picture above. Also be sure that the “Server” is the same as the one that was given to you in the Blue box at the beginning of this tutorial, you can find this box in cPanel as mentioned previously. Make sure that the “Port” is also the same as the one in the Blue box.

Support System

​We would like to inform our clients that from the 1st of July 2019, our phonelines have been updated. You will be asked when making the call to choose what department you wish to be connected to. Each department requires certain actions to be done before ringing our support center.

Before contacting our support center, we recommend you open a ticket with us and send all the necessary information that will be needed to resolve the issue that you’re currently experiencing.
After opening a ticket with us, our system will generate a Ticket ID for you, please always have this Ticket ID ready when calling our support center.

All account changes can only be made via a ticket opened from the client or an email sent in from the registered email address of the account. We will still help you, but our help will be limited if you are not the contact address. We also strongly recommend opening a ticket from the client area as they skip straight to our system than a usual email address does. Opening a ticket from the client area is the most efficient and quickest way of opening a ticket. When sending in a ticket be sure to add as much detail about the issue as you can to make it easier and faster for our Support Staff to resolve the issue.

​Most technical issues will not be resolved over phone as these do require more attention in order to fix them. We do understand the frustration when something isn’t working as it’s supposed to be. We always aim to solve the issue as fast as possible.

​The reason we rely on tickets is they allow us to see more information about the issue than talking over phone, they also guarantee us fast and efficient access to your account to resolve the issue.

<![CDATA[The Life Cycle of a Domain]]>Tue, 02 Jul 2019 19:03:57 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/the-life-cycle-of-a-domain

The life of a domain

​The domain has a very interesting life if you could say so, strange right? Thinking that a domain may have a life or anything besides that it hosts your services. It all starts off from the day you register it at your chosen web hosting company.

Registered Period

​The domain is brought to life by you registering it, for this article we will go with my domain which is ieattacoeveryday.com, from then on I pay the web hosting company for registering it and then it’s mine domain and I own all the rights to it.

Every year you pay a price to keep it alive, you can always renew it for more than 1 year if you don’t want it bothering you every year.

Grace Period

​Let’s say I forgot to renew my domain on the day of expiry, from then on it will go into a grace period which makes the domain in-active and makes your website go down with all your services attached to it as well. You can still renew for the same price, but some companies tend to put a late fee depending on how long you take to renew it.

Grace Period Lasts from 30 - 45 days.

Redemption Period

​If I still don’t renew my domain after the expiry period it goes into the redemption period, this is the worst period your domain can go into while you own it, it costs a huge amount of money (Ranging $250+) to make it active again as registrars tend to delete all the information about that domain to make it go available again after the redemption period in which it will be deleted.

Redemption Period Lasts 30 days.

Deleted and Renewed Period

​The Final period in which the domain is deleted and put back into the domain pool in which it can be registered again.

How does Web World keep track of Domains?

We always strongly recommend our clients to renew the domain at the earliest time they can to prevent it from getting into the Grace Period or the Redemption Period, we have multiple protocols set in our system to keep you reminded about the status of your domain, also logging into your client area and managing your domain will help you a lot too as you can gather valuable information from there.

You will receive emails about your domain expiring. 

First Notice - 60 Days
Second Notice - 30 Days
Third Notice - 15 Days
Fourth Notice - 7 Days
Fifth Notice - 1 Day

If you do have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact us at support@webworld.ie or give us a ring at TEL: +353 14951112

<![CDATA[Dedicated Server or VPS?]]>Tue, 02 Jul 2019 14:06:09 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/dedicated-server-or-vps

Customize Your Requirements

​You might find yourself sitting in front of a computer, wondering, which one should I go for and which one will suit my needs the most? A VPS? Or a Dedicated Server?
 
I will run you down in this article on the positives and the negatives of both products and hopefully resolve the issue you’re having on deciding which one to choose. First, we will start of with the basics, what are dedicated servers and VPS?

VPS: 

A VPS is a Virtual Private Server, all clients on the server appear as if they are on separate machines but they aren’t, the VPS simulates the environment of having a machine fully dedicated to you, they are extremely like shared hosting yet so different through hardware, software and the amount of resources they contain.

​You do get more resources in a VPS than shared hosting due to the fact that VPS are supposed to be compared to dedicated servers.

Advantages of a VPS

Costs:
 

Hosting a server on a VPS is going to be cheaper most of the time when comparing it to a dedicated server, the reason it is cheaper is because it allows the hosting company to divide the space of the VPS among multiple users hence the price being lower than having a fully dedicated server.
 
Customizability & Scalability:
 
VPS are extremely customizable on software and resource wise, you can choose as much ram as you want in your personal VPS just like you would in a computer.

The good thing is that it is all virtual and you can always add more if you find yourself needing more power or even if you’re not using the full amount you have bought.

You can always scale it down to save yourself a bit of money! That example was just based on ram, but it can go with CPU cores, HDD, etc.…

Dedicated Server:

A dedicated server is a server which is assigned to one client, the client has full access to the range of resources on that server, this does include network access, RAM, CPU, HDD Storage.
​It is usually extremely powerful as it may serve more than one purpose depending on the company/client using it.


Now that you have a rough idea of what they both are I will run you down through some of the advantages and disadvantages of both products.

Advantages of a Dedicated Server

Speed:
 
The dedicated Server is going to be extremely fast and responsive compared to the VPS as it isn’t shared and has all its resources stored it to itself. It can also hold more resources than a VPS due to the structure of hardware allowing it to hold more ram and other components.
 
Security:
 
Dedicated servers are more secure than VPS due to the fact there is no one else on that machine, in the case of the VPS you’re stored on a machine with other users as previously stated which does already signal possible threats, being honest, the chances are extremely low in any shape of form for your data to be breached or hacked. With dedicated servers you are completely by yourself on your own machine, and the only way your information could be stolen is by being hacked, luckily, the security of dedicated servers is very good which will protect your data safely.
 
Configuration:
 
As I stated before in the description of a Dedicated Server, the client does have full access to everything, you can change various settings in software and hardware. This is also handy for people that do know what they want and what they need from a server as they can configure as much as they want.

Conclusion

​I will give you my personal opinion on both of the products, they are both amazing on what they offer, I understand why people at times do not know which one to choose.
 
Personally, if your business is small and you need manage your online website, a VPS would be perfect for you as you do not have to process much information in the background. If your website is big and you have a lot of data to process then I would suggest a dedicated server for your needs. Luckily if you found yourself reading this and finding out that you want one of those services, Web World offers both of them! We also offer a huge amount of customizability for both of the products for you to find what suits you the best!
