SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic globally, so that they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second it is removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection service for your domains with a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our web hosting. This is done from the section with the very same name and you are able to set up the protection for any domain hosted on our leading-edge cloud platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you'll have to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you'll be able to include several servers too, when needed. If your email addresses are managed on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more secure option by setting a restriction that email messages can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This alternative cannot be applied if your web site is hosted here, and your e-mail addresses are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution can considerably increase your web safety and prevent others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The SPF protection attribute comes with all the semi-dedicated hosting packages, so when you host your domains in an account on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to use the service without difficulty for any of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a really easy to use interface, which means that you won't have to be proficient in the use of computers to secure your email addresses. You will simply have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be certified to send e-mails from your addresses and shortly after that the new record will be active for the domain that you have picked. As a further option, we will also give you the ability to control the outgoing e-mail messages and protect your mailboxes even further by allowing e-mail messages to be sent only if the domain involved has our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain should be managed here and not by some other provider. By doing this you'll have even superior control and there won't be a chance for anyone to counterfeit your email addresses for malicious uses.
