A spam filter is a software application that hinders unsolicited messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s rather important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate safety levels. In case you still receive spam or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not need to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can pick one of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic messages get blocked, or if junk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make certain that you have not omitted a genuine message.
