Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different one, usually with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world have it. The record features all of the mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. When you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with our shared web hosting service. This is performed via the section with the very same name and you can set up the protection for each domain on our hi-tech cloud platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you'll be able to include several servers too, if needed. When your emails are taken care of by us, you can also use an even more secure option by placing a limit that e-mails can be sent only if your domain names have our MX records. This alternative can't be applied when your site is here, while your e-mails are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution will significantly enhance your web protection and prevent other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The SPF protection attribute is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated servers, so when you host your domains in an account on our cloud web hosting platform, you'll be able to activate this service easily for all of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a rather easy to work with interface, therefore you do not have to be proficient in the use of computers to secure your emails. You'll only need to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you would like to be allowed to send e-mails from your addresses and immediately after that the new record will be activated for the domain name that you have chosen. As an extra option, we'll also give you the ability to restrict the outgoing emails and protect your mailboxes even further by allowing e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain name in question features our MX records i.e. the email messages for the domain should be taken care of here and not by some other provider. By doing so you will enjoy even better control and there will not be any chance for anybody to forge your e-mails for malicious objectives.
