Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is intended to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another, generally with the purpose to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world get it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an email address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message will not be submitted and it'll be removed. Whenever you use this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam which appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux hosting packages. This carried out from the section with the same name and you're able to set up the protection for each domain part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you'll have to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can include several servers too, if needed. In case your e-mails are taken care of on our end, you may also take advantage of a more secure option by placing a restriction that e-mails can be sent only when your domains include our MX records. This alternative cannot be used if your web site is hosted here, but the email addresses are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection solution will tremendously enhance your web protection and prevent others from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes as standard with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, provides you with an incredibly easy-to-use interface to enable the SPF security service for every domain name that you host in your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you will only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be allowed to send messages from your email addresses. If the e-mail messages are managed by us and not by another supplier, you are able to boost the protection level even further and take advantage of an option for the outgoing e-mails to be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This option will give you better control and it'll eliminate any chance of anybody forging your emails with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It is not applicable if only your web site is hosted on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, while your emails are managed by some other service provider.
