Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, in other words – unrequested messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails annoying, but they also pose a threat to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why plenty of email providers resort to spam filters, which are software apps that keep track of all incoming messages and filter out the unwanted ones on the basis of their content – what words an email consists of and how often they’re cited, what site a particular hyperlink opens, what server the email message comes from, etc. Some web hosts also rely on the databases of spam-tracing organizations dedicated to the provision of the most up-to-the-minute information about unwelcome email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t receive any email message in their inbox that is not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can pick one of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate emails get blocked, or if junk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
