Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That’s why, numerous email service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they are cited, what site a particular hyperlink leads to, what outgoing email server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any email message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unasked-for messages out of your mailbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be achieved through the fully featured Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we offer the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered messages should be erased or redirected to another email account where you can review them later to make certain that you won’t miss legitimate email messages. Switching to some other level of protection or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks.
