Setup POP3 and SMTP for Gmail

In this guide we help you to set up your email account in Gmail with POP3.
Before you continue, we want to make you aware of few limitations
Gmail will only allow you to set up your email with POP, which mean you can only download emails form your Inbox and not IMAP, it doesn’t get synced back to the server.

Gmail only downloads emails from your Inbox and not from other folders, like Send and Drafts.

By default, Gmail downloads the emails and then removes them from the server. We recommend that you check the option to leave a copy of the email on the server. That way you can still access your emails in Webmail.

Log in to Gmail and go to Settings

  • Log in to your Gmail account.
Setup POP3 and SMTP for Gmail
  • Click the gear icon in the top right corner.
  • Select Settings from the drop-down menu.
Setup POP3 and SMTP for Gmail

Add an email account

  • Click Accounts and Import in the menu at the top.
  • Click Add an email account.

  • Check the option to leave a copy on the server (Recommended).
  • Check the option the use SSL.
Setup POP3 and SMTP for Gmail

Click Add account to continue.

Tip: We recommend you to check the option to leave a copy of your emails on the server. That way you can still access your emails in Webmail.

Confirm you want to send from Gmail

You can now receive emails from your email account in Gmail. The next step is to set up the outgoing settings, so that you can also send emails from your account.

  • Select “Yes, I want to be able to send…
  • Click Next.

Enter the sender name

  • Enter the sender name you want to be visible to your recipients.
  • Click Next step.

Tip: If your Gmail address is your primary address, and your other email address is only for recieving, you might want to check the box for “Treat as an alias”.

Enter the SMTP server settings

Please use the following settings for the outgoing email:

  • SMTP server:
  • Username: your email address
  • Password: the password you use to log in to Webmail
  • Port: 587
  • Secured connection: TLS

Click Add account to continue.

Gmail will now send you an email with a confirmation code.

cPanel Price Increase

Greetings everyone,

We wish to inform you about an important update that happened last week on 27th of 2019, where WHM cPanel have revised their pricing structure.


Till now, cPanel had been offering their license for VPS and Dedicated servers without any number of cPanel account restriction.

However, with the revised pricing, there has been tremendous change in the updated pricing, as the new pricing is now account based.

We at WebHostUK have been offering cPanel shared hosting, cPanel reseller hosting, cPanel VPS and Dedicated servers. As per the old pricing structure from cPanel, since there was no such restriction for pricing as per number of accounts on servers, our services were not depenedant on cPanel account based exclusive pricing.

WebHostUK has always believed in “prize freeze” and we are doing all possible attempts to avoid such price hike. The options that we have so far are:

1) Find a sutiable solution other than cPanel as control panel (which does not offer account based pricing) and migrate to that new control panel.
2) Pass on the price hike to our customers by adding the corresponding hike over to them.
3) Wait for any miracle to happen from cPanel end so that they revert back their revised pricing based on account limitations.

We are still evaluating Option 1 and do not wish to pass on any such increased pricing as Option 2 above. We find Option 3 to be difficult to happen.

This pricing change by cPanel has affected the entire web hosting industry that has been offering cPanel as control panel with their web hosting plans. Hence, this is a global issue, and not limited to WebHostUK as you may have noticed by now.

With barely a few days passed, that cPanel announced their revised pricing, we do not wish to jump to any conclusion or any major changes that may affect everyone. However, we will be considering all the possible options and will be evaluating them from our customer point of view. We wish restore your faith in us by assuring you that we will be doing everything that we can, to pass on minimum impact towards our customers. WebHostUK is a decade old web hosting company and we have worked with all major control panels, not depending on any such single control panel such as cPanel. We have highly experienced system administrators who hold years of experience of mastering all other control panels, generating migration scripts to new control panel (if needed). We wish to assure you, there is nothing to panic, as we will take the decision that goes best with interest and convenience of everyone. While other web hosting companies out there are in shock and panic, we at WebHostUK want to assure you, we will be working on offering the best solution with minimum to no side-effects of adopting new technologies or control panel.

If you have any queries regarding cPanel pricing, please feel free to open a support ticket with us.
Thank you for your time.

Is WebhostUK GDPR compliant?

What is the GDPR?

The biggest regulatory changes that will soon be upon us – the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be implemented globally from 25th of May 2018.

Announced earlier in December 2015 by the EU commission, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be implemented on 25th of May 2018, and will eventually override the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

The new law, now termed as GDPR, is gearing up for a big change, to create a harmonized data privacy law across EU member states.

GDPR is wide-reaching in scope and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed. It also places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to all EU organisations that collect, store or process the personal data of individuals residing in the EU, including non-EU citizens.

Organisations based outside the EU that offer goods or services to EU residents, monitor their behaviour or process their personal data will also be subject to the GDPR.

What is WEBHOSTUK LIMITED doing, to comply with GDPR regulations?

The protection of our customer’s personal data is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to achieving compliance by May 25, 2018. We have classified our plan in 8 broad categories:

1) Updating our Terms and Conditions to reflect changes brought in by the GDPR
2) Updating our Privacy Statement to ensure that our customers know exactly what we do with their data
3) Minimising the amount of customer personal data that we collect and use
4) Reviewing our usage of personal data
5) Ensuring that the personal data we do hold is accurate and kept up to date
6) Ensuring that personal data is stored securely and that all relevant safeguards are in place
7) Reviewing the way we obtain marketing consents to ensure compliance with the “opt-in” principle contained in the GDPR
8) Reviewing all data processing agreements in place with our partners and suppliers to certify that third party processes are compliant with the GDPR

What happens next?

You will not notice any difference to the service you receive from WebHostUK Limited. We are simply making sure that we are fully compliant with the GDPR by 25th May 2018. If you have any specific queries, please contact Customer Care by emailing us on or raise a ticket in your Online Control Panel.
