SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at blocking the so-called email faking. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, so they all will identify if an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from using your emails for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our web hosting plans. This is done through the section with the same name and you can allow the protection for each domain hosted on our exceptional cloud platform. Using a very intuitive interface, all you will need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, it is possible to add several servers as well, when needed. In case your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more secure option by placing a limit that emails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This alternative can't be applied in case your site is hosted with us, and the e-mails are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option can strongly increase your web safety and prevent others from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the standard collection of services that you will receive using this kind of hosting. Enabling the protection requires only a few simple steps in the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore even in case you have never used such a function before, you will not have any issues. Employing an exceptionally time and effort saving interface, you will just need to input the info of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the newly created record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any email for that particular domain name and send out messages from a server different from the one you have entered. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, but in case we handle your email messages, you are able to allow an extra level of protection by selecting an option that emails can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only in the event that the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support crew will be able to assist you 24/7 if you have any questions related to this service.
