Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is used to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from another, usually with the objective to fraud the recipient someway. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world get it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it will be discarded. Whenever you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam that seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection service for your domains with a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our website hosting. This is done through the section with the same name and you can set up the protection for each and every domain part of our modern cloud platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you'll need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you'll be able to include several servers as well, when needed. If your emails are taken care of by us, you can also take advantage of a more secure option by putting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only when your domain names feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be applied when your website is hosted with us, but the e-mails are with some third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will strongly increase your web protection and prevent others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
