SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which has all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize if an email message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible by default with every single website hosting package that we offer and you can use it without difficulty so that you can secure the e-mail addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of the cutting-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from e-mails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your emails can be handled by some other provider, but if we take care of them in addition to your site, you can also enable the option for your emails to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This selection gives you better protection as solely our server will be permitted to send out emails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any kind of troubles with this service, you can contact our technical support team at any time and they will help you immediately.
