SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, therefore they all can recognize whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all of our website hosting services. This carried out through the section with the very same name and you're able to allow the protection for each and every domain on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you'll need to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can include several servers too, when needed. If your email addresses are managed on our end, you may also take advantage of an even more secure option by placing a limit that e-mails can be sent only when your domain names feature our MX records. This option cannot be used in case your web site is hosted with us, but the emails are with some third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection option will significantly enhance your online protection and stop others from spoofing your e-mail addresses.

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting, provides you with a very user-friendly interface to activate the SPF security service for each domain name that you host inside your new account.

When the e-mails are handled by us and not by some other provider, you'll be able to raise the protection level even more and enable an option for all the outgoing emails to be sent only if your domain names use our MX records. This option will provide you with more control and it'll eliminate any chance of anyone forging your emails with the purpose of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable in case only your site is hosted on our modern cloud hosting platform, while your e-mails are managed by some other provider.
