Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to seem as being sent from another one, usually with the idea to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record contains all of the email servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an email address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it will be removed. If you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam emails which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our shared hosting. This is done through the section bearing the very same name and you are able to enable the protection for any domain name part of our exceptional cloud hosting platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to add several servers too, when needed. When your emails are managed by us, you may also employ a more risk-free option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This alternative can't be applied in case your site is here, and your email addresses are with some third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option can strongly increase your web protection and stop other people from forging your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular group of services that you will receive using this kind of website hosting. Starting the protection requires only a few simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore even in the event that you haven't employed this kind of feature before, you won't have any issues. Through a really time and effort saving interface, you will only have to insert the information of the mail server that will be authorized to send messages from your email addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the newly made record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any e-mail for that particular domain and send out e-mail messages from a server different from the one you've entered. This does not specifically have to be our mail server, yet if we manage your email messages, you are able to enable an additional level of protection by choosing an option that email messages can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only if the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support staff can assist you 24/7 if you have any questions related to this service.
