Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may be conned. That’s why, a lot of mail service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are cited, what site a certain hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP server the email is sent from, etc. Some web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome emails, to ensure that their customers won’t get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can review them later, so as to ensure that valuable messages will not get lost.
