Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your own computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. That is why, many mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all inbound messages and filter the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words an email contains and how many times they are referred to, what site a certain hyperlink opens, what outgoing server the email message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome emails, to make sure that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
