A spam filter is an application that blocks unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s quite important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of protection. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to another email account where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about junk emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every account.

To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed out on a legitimate email message.
