Most emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That’s why, numerous email providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all incoming email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email includes and how many times they’re mentioned, what site a given hyperlink redirects to, what mail server the email comes from, etc. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unrequested messages, to make certain that their clients won’t receive any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited email messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also adjust the safety level with a couple of clicks in case spam messages still enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased straight away or delivered to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss a message that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
