Most of the emails sent around the globe these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with links to malicious software. Not only are such emails aggravating, but they also pose a threat to your own PC, not to mention that you may be conned. For this reason, plenty of email providers use spam filters, which are software applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they’re referred to, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what outbound email server the message comes from, etc. Certain hosting providers also make use of the databases of spam-tracking organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-the-minute info about unasked-for email messages, to make certain that their clients won’t get any email message in their mailbox that shouldn’t be there.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low.

To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you have not omitted a genuine email message.
