Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get swindled. That is the reason why a lot of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they’re referred to, what website a given link leads to, what outbound mail server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unwelcome email messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can review them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also incredibly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk email messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can select one of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, authentic messages get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like [email protected] and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not omitted an authentic message.
