SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Basically, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some way the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, therefore they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection service for your domains with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our website hosting plans. This is performed from the section with the very same name and you're able to enable the protection for any domain hosted on our exceptional cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you will have to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you'll be able to include several servers too, if needed. In case your e-mails are taken care of by us, you may also employ an even more risk-free option by placing a limit that emails can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This option cannot be applied when your website is hosted with us, but your e-mails are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will greatly increase your online security and prevent other people from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, offers you an exceptionally intuitive interface to activate the SPF security service for every domain name that you host within your new account. A few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that and you will only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your emails. If the e-mail messages are managed on our end and not by another supplier, you will be able to increase the security level even further and benefit from an option for all the outgoing e-mail messages to be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This option provides you with more control and it will eliminate any chance of anyone forging your email addresses with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable if only your site is hosted on our modern cloud hosting platform, while your e-mail addresses are managed by another provider. If you aren't sure what features to pick, our technical support crew will assist you 24/7.
