Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That is why, lots of mail service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how often they’re cited, what website a certain link redirects to, what SMTP mail server the email message comes from, etc. Certain web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unasked-for email messages, to make sure that their clients will not get any email in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the filter flags as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed an authentic message.
