SSL certificates

SSL Certificates - More security for your website!

In the era of e-commerce the subject of security on the Internet is increasingly important. Sensitive data such as credit card numbers, passwords or address data should therefore always be transmitted in encrypted form when surfing the Internet. In order to enable encrypted transmission, your Internet service provider must fulfil the necessary conditions. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol protects your website and increases the trust of your customers because:

  • there is encryption of confidential data in online transactions
  • the SSL Certificate contains information about the owner of the certificate
  • the certifying body checks the identity of the certificate owner

Virus and spam protection

5x Antivirus & Spam Protection - No more unsolicited emails!

Spam emails, sometimes called junk emails, are usually undesirable, very annoying, advertising emails! Everyone who communicates via email is familiar with this problem...

  • Hoststar spam protection is programmed on the basis of the experience of our expert server administrators and support teams, and scans all incoming mail.
  • In addition, the Hoststar blacklist is synchronised with three international antispam-databases, which guarantees reliable and effective blocking of spam. With the entry in the blacklist of the spam servers in question (open relay servers**), whole waves of spam can be stopped.
  • The Hoststar OCR spam filter (text recognition software for image data) recognises spam emails that are based on graphics and reliably filters these out.
  • The Hoststar virus scanner checks all emails for infected content and automatically deletes infected emails.
  • The Hoststar FTP virus protection checks all files and data for every data transfer on or from our servers, and stores these only after thorough control.

Our entire server farm is protected by ultra-modern firewall technology and monitored 24/365 in our Network Operating Center.

We wish our webhosting customers renewed pleasure in receiving emails!

** Open relay servers are email servers via which anyone can send emails.
Many spammers abuse such open mail servers to send their advertising emails via foreign servers.
