Most email messages sent around the world these days are spam, in other words – unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malicious software. Not only are such email messages irritating, but they also present a threat to your computer, not to mention that you may get conned. That’s the reason why many email service providers use email filters, which are applications that ‘scan’ all incoming emails and filter the undesired ones based on their content – what words an email message includes and how many times they are cited, what web site a particular hyperlink points to, what mail server the message comes from, etc. Some web hosting companies also make use of the databases of spam-monitoring organizations dedicated to providing the most up-to-date info about undesired messages, to ensure that their clients will not get any message in their mailbox that’s not supposed to be there.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting plans

With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different levels of security. In case you continue to receive junk emails or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time.
