A spam filter is an application that blocks unwelcome messages from reaching a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to a separate email account where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting service, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can pick one of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed out on a legitimate email.
