No more flooding
That significantly reduces the load on our servers and the potential for "flooding attacks" -- a common denial of service tactic where spammers rapidly blast messages to random addresses through repeated connections to web and email servers. Aside from filling mailboxes with spam, such attacks can cripple servers, causing delays in receiving and delivering legitimate email. With BlockSmith, such attacks are detected instantly and stopped.
Protects your mailbox
Protects your web site
These kinds of attacks against your web pages is challenging for most web site owners, web hosting companies, and web designers to defend against. However, DTL's integrated BlockSmith technology employs a comprehensive detection and scoring system that, in real time, identifies bad form postings from legitimate messages. Spam postings are rejected and subsequent attempts to connect to our servers are denied.
A high rejection rate is nothing to boast
The good old days
Good email and web design practices can helpBlockSmith is one part of the fight against spam. Getting spammed is usually a result of poor email address practices and negligent web design. When your public email address is known to spammers (see the asking for spam sidebar), the spam never stops and usually increases. It disrupts business and puts you, your employees and customers at risk of computer viruses.
The most important part of our service includes providing helpful guidance and education to our customers to prevent email addresses from becoming spam magnets in the first place. Staying off the spam lists while benefitting from DTL's BlockSmith protection gives you huge advantage and improves the quality of your email.
A free service for our valued customersCustomers with email service from DTL all benefit from our BlockSmith technology. It protects our entire network, so businesses that use DTL's Business Email Gateway service as a front-line of defense for their own mail servers benefit from BlockSmith, too. Customers with DTL-designed web sites automatically are protected from contact page spam and email address harvesting.
Anyone can design. Anyone can host. But...This is where DTL breaks away from the rest in offering a higher level of service. Web hosting outfits and web designers abound and their services individually are a commodity. But finding a single firm that can do both well is rare. Even more uncommon is the company that can rapidly integrate design and hosting logistics with appropriate technology to solve common and emerging issues. That's what DTL does with a high degree of competency.
