Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be conned. For this reason, many mail service providers use spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message includes and how many times they are mentioned, what site a certain hyperlink points to, what outbound SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about undesired emails, to make certain that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five levels of protection that the anti-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 hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to another email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesired emails away from your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be accomplished through the feature-rich Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or redirected to a separate email address where you can view them later so as to make certain that you will not lose authentic emails. Switching to some other protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks of the mouse.
