Most emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unwanted messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get tricked. This is why, plenty of email service providers resort to email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how often they’re referred to, what site a particular link points to, what outbound SMTP mail server the email message is sent from, etc. Some web hosting providers also rely on the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-date info about unsolicited email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any message in their inbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be done through the feature-laden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered emails should be deleted or re-sent to another mailbox where you can read them later in order to ensure that you will not lose genuine messages. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks.
