Unlimited email hosting means you can setup as many email accounts as your business needs. And all our web hosting plans come with cPanel control panel. This tool makes it easy to setup your email accounts, email forwarding, autoresponders, POP3, IMAP, and spam filters. You can use your cPanel to access webmail. If you need Google Apps for business, you can use your cPanel to edit your domains’ MX records and route a domain’s incoming mail to a specific server (like Google’s).
