Do the right thing

We not recommend under any circumstances implementing Spam into your marketing strategies.

Our 20+ years in the industry have shown that successful webmasters do not need to use these methods and the webmasters that do use them usually do not last. With this in mind, we do not allow any mass mailing to unsolicited email recipients and will act accordingly in the case your account is proven to be using Spam. We do not allow what is called a "drop page" where SPAM e-mails direct their links to your web page. In addition we have installed anti-SPAM and Spam detecting software on all of our shared servers at root level.

There are hundreds of so-called SPAM preventing websites that list any server (company) whereby customers have filed a SPAM-complaint. The problem with the SPAM prevention websites is that they add server names to a list without contacting the company for an explanation. Without further SPAM-complaints, this can already take several months to remove. The easiest and most noticeable fault with this is that a competitor can get your website listed with fake SPAM. Hopefully, someday the service will be more efficient but for now we highly recommend not using these SPAM filtering websites with your email account. Some free email accounts use these SPAM filtering websites by default.

Our email, as well as most professional email services allow ways to create your own black list. If you receive SPAM simply enter the email, IP, or a key word to block that email from being sent to you again. More SPAM filtering solutions are available below as well.

What is SPAM?

Email SPAM, also known as junk email, is unsolicited messages sent in bulk by email (spamming).

The name comes from SPAM luncheon meat by way of a Monty Python sketch in which SPAM is ubiquitous, unavoidable and repetitive. Email SPAM has steadily grown since the early 1990s, and by 2014 was estimated that it made up around 90% of email messages sent.

Since the expense of the SPAM is borne mostly by the recipient, it is effectively postage due advertising. This makes it an excellent example of a negative externality.

The legal definition and status of SPAM varies from one jurisdiction to another, but laws and lawsuits have nowhere been particularly successful in stemming SPAM.

Most email SPAM messages are commercial in nature. Whether commercial or not, many are not only annoying, but also dangerous because they may contain links that lead to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware - or include malware as file attachments.

Spammers collect email addresses from chat rooms, websites, customer lists, newsgroups, and viruses that harvest users' address books. These collected email addresses are sometimes also sold to other spammers.
