Hostnet Implements Email Filtering Service

Web hosting provider and domain name registrar extraordinaire Hostnet has teamed up with email security provider SpamExperts to introduce a filtering service for inbound and outbound emails on its network.

SpamExperts allows Web hosts to quell the amount of spam and viruses coming through their network, which helps prevent the company from being blacklisted and improves email backup and compliance services via email archiving. The company claims to have 99.98 percent filtering accuracy.

Hostnet will deploy SpamExperts' local cloud product on its virtual hardware instead of on the hosted cloud running the SpamExperts network. The platform will be managed and monitored by SpamExperts, who will also provide updates to the email security software.

This isn't the first time that a hosting company has enlisted SpamExperts' services. The company has also integrated with or provided plugins for cPanel, Plesk and Parallels Automation. Now, its email filtering service will be available to Hostnet's impressive client base of over 500,000 registered domain names and 100,000 subscriptions.
