SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, so they all will recognize if an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

SPF protection can be enabled for any domain hosted in a website hosting account on our cloud platform with only a couple of mouse-clicks. The option can be found in the Emails section of our outstanding Hepsia Control Panel and all you need to activate it is to pick one of your domain names from the drop-down menu and enter the hostnames together with the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the email servers which will be certified to send emails from your emails. As an added option you can even restrict the e-mails to be sent from your domain name only if it has our MX records, in other words if our servers manage the email addresses for it, not some third-party supplier. This feature offers you the top level of protection, but it is not applicable if only your web site is on our servers while your email addresses for the domain name are managed elsewhere. In either case, the SPF protection service will keep your email addresses secure from being used for spam and scam purposes.
