Most emails sent around the world nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also pose a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s why, numerous mail service providers use email filters, which are apps that monitor all inbound emails and filter the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email includes and how often they’re referred to, what site a certain hyperlink points to, what server the message is sent from, etc. Certain web hosts also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unsolicited emails, to make certain that their customers will not receive any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to a different email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, you won’t have to worry about junk emails occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, legitimate emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate email.
