Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another, typically with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message will not be sent and it'll be discarded. In the event that you use this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam that appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You're able to activate the SPF protection service for your domains with a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all of our cloud hosting plans. This is performed from the section bearing the very same name and you can enable the protection for each and every domain on our exceptional cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you will have to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to add several servers too, when needed. When your email addresses are managed on our end, you may also take advantage of a more risk-free option by putting a limit that messages can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This solution can't be used when your site is hosted with us, while your e-mail addresses are with a third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can strongly improve your online safety and stop other people from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are able to benefit from the SPF protection feature as part of the conventional collection of services that you will have using this kind of website hosting. Starting the protection involves just several simple steps inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even if you've never employed this kind of feature before, you won't have any kind of issues. Using a very intuitive interface, you'll only need to type in the details 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). Once the newly created record propagates, no one will be able to fake any email address for that particular domain name and send emails from a server different from the one you have typed in. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, yet in case we manage your e-mails, you're able to activate an extra level of security by choosing an option that e-mails can be send out 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 kind of questions about this service.
