Most of the email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, i.e. unsolicited messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be duped. That’s the reason why many email providers make use of email filters, which are applications that monitor all inbound email messages and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email contains and how often they’re cited, what web site a particular hyperlink leads to, what outbound email server the email message is sent from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unwelcome messages, to ensure that their clients won’t receive any email message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account such as and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not omitted a legitimate message.
