Most emails sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is the reason why a lot of mail service providers rely on spam filters, which are software apps that ‘scan’ all inbound emails and filter out the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words an email message consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a given link points to, what outbound email server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date info about undesired email messages, to make certain that their customers won’t get any email message in their inbox that should not be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our shared hosting packages, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. If you continue to receive spam email messages or the email filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be regarded as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to some other email address where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, legitimate messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed a legitimate email.
