SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email forging. In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some way the person opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, therefore they all will recognize whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux website hosting. This is done from the section with the same name and you're able to enable the protection for any domain on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you will have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can add several servers too, when needed. When your e-mails are managed on our end, you can also use an even more secure option by placing a restriction that emails can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This option cannot be applied if your web site is here, but the e-mails are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will tremendously improve your web safety and prevent others from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can benefit from the SPF protection feature as part of the standard group of services that you will get using this type of hosting.

Using a very user-friendly interface, you'll simply have to input the info of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the recently generated record propagates, nobody will be able to counterfeit any email address for that particular domain name and send out e-mail messages from a server other than the one you've entered. This does not specifically have to be our mail server, yet if we take care of your e-mails, you are able to enable an extra level of security by picking an option that email messages can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only if the domain uses our MX records. Our technical support crew can help you 24/7 if you have any questions regarding this service.
