Most email messages sent around the world nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such emails irritating, but they also pose a threat to your PC, not to mention that you may be tricked. That is why, numerous mail service providers resort to email filters, which are software apps that monitor all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email message contains and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a specific hyperlink points to, what outgoing SMTP mail server the message comes from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-date information about unrequested emails, to ensure that their clients won’t get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to a different email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account like and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed a legitimate message.
