A spam filter is an application that stops unwelcome email messages from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create under a shared website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use.

If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular email account, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.
