SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some manner the person receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic internationally, thus they all will identify if an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second it is removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

SPF protection can be activated for each domain hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud platform with just a couple of mouse-clicks. The option is accessible in the Emails section of our modern Hepsia Control Panel and all you need to use it is to pick one of your domains from a drop-down list and then type in the hostnames along with the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the mail servers that will be approved to send email messages from your email addresses. As an added option you can even restrict the messages to be sent from your domain name only if it has our MX records, in other words when our servers handle the email addresses for it, not some third-party provider. This solution offers you the highest degree of safety, but it's not applicable in case only your site is on our servers while the email addresses for the domain are managed in another place. Either way, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses protected from being used for spam and scam purposes.
