Most email messages sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. undesired messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a risk to your PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That’s the reason why plenty of email service providers use spam filters, which are applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unsolicited messages, to ensure that their clients will not receive any email in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can check them later, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t get lost.
