Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. undesirable messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. That is why, lots of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how often they are referred to, what website a particular link leads to, what outbound SMTP email server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their customers will not receive any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the five levels of security that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive junk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can read them later, so as to ensure that important messages will not get lost.
