Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get duped. For this reason, plenty of email providers use email filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the unwanted ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message consists of and how often they are referred to, what site a particular link opens, what SMTP mail server the email is sent from, etc. Certain hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about undesirable messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header 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 level and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to a different email address where you can view them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different levels – from very low to very high. If you still get unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can check them later, so as to make certain that valuable messages won’t disappear.
