A spam filter is an app that hinders unsolicited messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s pretty important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the five levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic message.
