Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be conned. This is the reason why a lot of email providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email includes and how many times they are cited, what site a particular link leads to, what outgoing SMTP server the email comes from, and so on. Some providers also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine message. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to use the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unsolicited emails away from your mailbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated package. This can be done via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can view them later to make sure that you won’t miss genuine email messages. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires a few clicks.
