Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unwelcome messages with different offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may get ripped off. That is the reason why lots of email service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound messages and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message contains and how many times they’re mentioned, what website a specific hyperlink opens, what outgoing server the email message is sent from, and so on. Some hosting companies also rely on the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute info about unwanted messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also surprisingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the five levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
