SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some manner the person opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic across the globe, so they all will identify whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is performed at the 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 discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

SPF protection can be activated for any domain name hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud platform with just a few clicks. The feature is available in the Emails section of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel and what is needed to activate it is to choose one of your domain names from the drop-down menu and to enter the hostnames plus the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the mail servers which will be permitted to send messages from your email addresses. As an additional option you can also restrict the email messages to be sent from your domain only when it has our MX records, in other words when our servers manage the email addresses for it, not a third-party supplier. This feature provides you with the top standard of safety, but it's not applicable when only your website is on our servers while the email addresses for the domain name are managed in another place. Regardless, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses protected from being used for spam or scam purposes.
