Most of the emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malware. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also present a risk to your computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why many email service providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that keep track of all inbound email messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they are mentioned, what web site a given link opens, what email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about unrequested emails, to make certain that their customers won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different safety levels. If you still get junk email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the five levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
