Most of the email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is the reason why plenty of email providers use spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re cited, what site a given link redirects to, what server the message is sent from, and so on. Some companies also make use of the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting service, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can select one of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine email messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t missed an authentic email message.
