Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with various offers or with links to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be tricked. This is the reason why lots of email service providers use email filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what web site a specific hyperlink redirects to, what SMTP server the email comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate unsolicited emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can select any of the five protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed a genuine email message.
