HostSellers Email solutions provide you with a complete suite of tools that you need to communicate effectively online:

Email Announcer
Keep customers or visitors up-to-date with what's new and exciting on your website.

Autoresponders
Save time and respond quickly to customer inquiries with pre-written messages to all or certain Emails sent to an Email address. This functionality is particularly useful for out-of-office messages, auto marketing, or support replies based on the content within any given Email.

Spam Filtering
Prevent unsolicited Email (spam) from reaching your mailbox. Every Email you receive is evaluated and assigned a point value by an automated filter based on the message’s headers and content. One of three things can be done with Email flagged as Spam: "Tag and Deliver", "Delete" or "Quarantine".

Email Platform - Technical Overview

Clustered-Server Environment
HostSellers' Email platform is a proprietary mail system operating on a custom Linux kernel, in a clustered-server environment with a customized version of sendmail, that provides optimal performance for our innovative hardware configuration.

Our stringent virus scanning technology is based on the Cloudmark scanning engine. Our spam filtration system incorporates selected elements of SpamAssassin in conjunction with proprietary filtration software.

This clustered-server environment is a "distributed system” — a non-centralized network consisting of numerous server nodes communicating with one another and appearing to the end-user as a single entity which provides Email and/or web hosting services.

HostSellers' Email platform has high fault-tolerance levels and system redundancy, allowing it to perform flawlessly even if several hardware components were to fail simultaneously. Our use of RAID technology in our storage architecture guarantees no data is lost.

HostSellers' Email platform is capable of withstanding the majority of Denial-of-Service (DOS/DDOS) attacks, with little or no loss in performance.

Scalability
HostSellers' Email platform has been structured to allow for maximum scalability through the insertion of additional hardware, in parallel to our existing architecture, providing seamless integration with zero downtime and allowing for the deployment of additional hardware as the need arises, based on projected resource demand.

New or updated technology is easily integrated into HostSellers' Email platform. By taking advantage of system and resource redundancies, we are able to deploy updated hardware with little-to-no service downtime.

HostSellers' Email platform is monitored 24/7/365 by our highly-specialized systems administration team. Daily system performance audits and several proprietary automated monitoring systems ensure our mail system always runs at peak efficiency.

note: not all of the features listed above are available with all plans.
