Professional Spam Filtering & Email Tracking
"Email is the life blood of modern communication"
Lowesthosting provides Business Grade Email Service that is reliable, stable, fast and easy to use WITHOUT charging extra per mailbox fees for "premium" mail filtering.
Because 70-90% of all email hitting your email server is Spam or Junk we have developed tools to insure you get mail from those you want and don't waste your time sorting and deleting junk mail from those you don't.
For Outgoing Email: We monitor all mail server IP's for reputation and RBL status every few seconds to insure our IP is clean and if it ever did get on an rbl we auto switch it. We also use techniques such as SPF and Domain Keys to help identify your mail server server to make its mail more deliverable. Strict outbound mail rate and RFC compliance policies insure your email is processed within milliseconds and not stuck behind a large mail queue awaiting delivery.
For Incoming Email: Our custom Spam-Assassin Anti Spam Filtering System incorporates Bayes spam Classifier and custom rules to reject mail from servers that don't properly identify themselves in compliance with RFC industry standards. In addition we compare all inbound emails against multiple Real Time Black Lists (RBL's) to identify and reject email from known spam sources which significantly reduces spam.
Our Custom Spam and RBL Interface within our CAS® theme makes it easy for you to manage your mail server filter sensitivity and actions once spam is detected. New Custom Filters permit you to Whitelist emails you never want blocked and Blacklist stubborn emails that get past the normal filters by email address, Mail Server IP, Subject Key Word or Mail Body Key word or Phrase.
Inbound Mail Statistics
Use the inbound mail statistics let you gauge how effective your spam filter settings are set.
Searchable Mail Logs
This innovation allows you to view all email received by your server so you can verify if email was sent to you and when it was accepted or if rejected and the reason and source details. No more guessing if someone sent you email or why you didn't get it.
Powerful Modern Hardware
We use the latest Dell & Supermicro enterprise grade 8 core 3+ Ghz servers running massive 32 gb of ram and Dual 2TB hot swap Raid 1 mirrored hard drives over Gigabit ports permitting improved performance and hardware resiliency. Redundant raid hard drives means we use twice as much space to store each bit of data but adds a layer of redundancy should a hard drive fail your server will continue to operate normally.
State Of The Art Data Center & Network Infrastructure
Lowesthosting has partnered with Colo4 in Dallas TX as our primary Datacenter to Locate our servers and switching network. This premiere multi-million dollar facility is SSAE 16 and SAS70 Type II Audited giving it the highest security rating and capable of handling the worst natural disasters.
The facility has fully redundant N+2 Power with Diesel Generator Backup and Biometric security.
The Datacenter is centrally located minimizing the number of hops to improving access time and utilizes multiple feeds from diverse carriers. Intelligent Internap Flow Control Routing Platform identifies the absolute fastest route across Internet backbones, improving performance 15 to 25 percent.
• True BGP with intelligent routing • Multi-homed, carrier neutral • 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections from all providers, minimizing congestion. • 12 on-net providers with dual fiber entrances (Level 3 , AT&T, Xo, CentruyLink, Time Warner, Cogent, Zayo, Fiberlight, TW Telecom, Reliance, Inner City Fibernet) • Lowesthosting manages its own Arin Registered Class C IP space
Central Name Servers
We operate our own geographically diverse Central Name Servers that are fully IPV4 & IPV6 capable which means you only need set your Domain Name Servers one time. This allows us to move your site between servers without you having to update your domain or Name Server propagation delays.
Daily Off Server and Archival Backups Included
Lowesthosting knows how important your website and email files are and takes data integrity very seriously. Backups are insurance that should something go wrong we can get your website and email data back online quickly and with minimal disruption.
Because we run Raid (redundant hard drives) its rare that we need to restore an entire server however Raid only mirrors your data and will not protect you against accidental deletions should you lose or accidentally delete emails, loss of files from malware infection or accidental FTP overwriting or some unknown exploit.
Most hosts only do limited weekly or monthly backups and backup to the same drive which is very bad policy. This not only causes load spikes in cpu and disk i/o during backup but is outright dangerous because if the drive fails they lose both your files and their backups.
Lowesthosting is one of the few hosts that not only does daily backups but also remote off server archival backups so your data is stored in two separate locations. By using multiple archival snapshots, we can roll backwards in time to restore data days or weeks after you realize it was missing or corrupted.
In addition our off server backup Array is designed as an emergency failover server. In the event of a major emergency that would normally take many hours to restore, we simply start up your server in failover mode so we have you back online in under an hour.
