Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with different offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also pose a risk to your own personal computer, not to mention that you may get scammed. This is the reason why a lot of email providers rely on spam filters, which are software applications that monitor all incoming messages and filter the undesirable ones on the basis of their content – what words or phrases an email contains and how often they’re cited, what website a specific link points to, what outbound email server the message is sent from, etc. Some hosting companies also use the databases of spam-tracking organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-the-minute information about undesired emails, to ensure that their customers will not get any message in their mailbox that is not supposed to be there.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the content of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or delivered to another email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
