SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, thus they all will recognize whether an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our shared hosting plans. This is done via the section with the very same name and you are able to set up the protection for any domain name on our modern cloud platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you will have to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you're able to add several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mails are handled by us, you may also use an even more secure option by putting a limit that email messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This option can't be applied if your website is here, but the emails are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection solution will vastly improve your online safety and prevent other people from spoofing your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes as standard with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, provides you with a really user-friendly interface to enable the SPF protection service for each domain that you host in your new account. A couple of clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you'll only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses. If the emails are handled on our end and not by some other supplier, you will be able to raise the protection level even more and activate an option for the outgoing email messages to be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option provides you with better control and it'll eliminate any possibility of anybody faking your e-mails with the intention of spamming and scamming people. It is not applicable in case only your web site is hosted on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform, while your email addresses are handled by another provider.
