SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our website hosting plans. This is performed through the section bearing the very same name and you'll be able to enable the protection for any domain name hosted on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Using a very handy interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be authorized to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to include several servers as well, if needed. In case your email addresses are managed by us, you may also use an even more risk-free option by putting a restriction that email messages can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be applied in case your site is hosted with us, but the e-mail addresses are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option can definitely enhance your online security and stop other people from spoofing your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The SPF protection attribute is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host your domains in an account on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate this particular service easily for any of your domain names. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a quite easy to work with interface, therefore you will not need to be tech-savvy to secure your e-mail addresses. You'll only need to type the hostname and the IP address of each mail server that you'd like to be permitted to send out emails from your addresses and right after that the new record will be active for the domain that you've selected. As an additional option, we also give you the ability to restrict the outgoing e-mail messages and secure your mailboxes even further by permitting emails to be sent only if the domain name involved includes our MX records i.e. the emails for the domain have to be managed here and not by another supplier. In this way you will get even superior control and there will not be a chance for any person to fake your emails for harmful uses.
