Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also present a risk to your own computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That is the reason why lots of email service providers use spam filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a particular link redirects to, what outbound email server the email comes from, and so on. Certain hosting providers also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unwanted email messages, to make certain that their clients will not get any message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can select between five different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom filters and either delete unasked-for messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like where you can view them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also tweak the security level with a few clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to reach your mailbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
