Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – undesired messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may get duped. That’s the reason why many mail service providers use email filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how many times they are referred to, what site a specific hyperlink points to, what outbound SMTP server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited email messages, to make sure that their clients won’t receive any message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the email messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email account where you can view them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unwelcome email messages away from your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection that we offer with every semi-dedicated package. This can be achieved through the feature-rich Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or re-sent to another email account where you can read them later so as to ensure that you won’t miss genuine email messages. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks of the mouse.
