Most of the email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own PC, not to mention that you may be scammed. That is why, many email providers make use of spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are cited, what web site a particular hyperlink opens, what SMTP email server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesired emails, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can pick between five separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either eliminate unwelcome messages or forward them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can pick one of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, legitimate emails get filtered, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t omitted an authentic email message.
