A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound emails to block any unwelcome ones from entering a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting packages, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate security levels. In case you still receive spam emails or the email filters start preventing legitimate 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 filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to another email address where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that important messages will not get lost.
