SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, so they all will recognize if an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

SPF protection can be activated for every domain name hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform with no more than a couple of clicks. The feature can be found in the Emails section of our exceptional Hepsia Control Panel and what is needed to enable it is to choose one of your domain names from the drop-down list and then enter the hostnames as well as the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the e-mail servers which will be certified to send messages from your email addresses. As an additional option you can also restrict the e-mails to be sent from your domain only when it has our MX records, in other words when our servers handle the emails for it, not some third-party provider. This option will provide you with the highest standard of safety, but it's not applicable if only your website is on our servers while your e-mail addresses for the domain are managed elsewhere. Either way, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses risk-free from being used for spam or scam purposes.
