Most email messages sent around the globe nowadays are spam, in other words – unwelcome messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages aggravating, but they also present a threat to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. This is why, a lot of email service providers resort to spam filters, which are applications that monitor all incoming email messages and filter the undesirable ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they are mentioned, what website a specific hyperlink leads to, what server the email is sent from, and so on. Certain web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-detecting organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date information about unrequested messages, to make certain that their clients will not receive any email message in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter reports as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
