SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at stopping the so-called email counterfeiting. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the person opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, thus they all can identify whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available by default with every single cloud web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to use it without difficulty so as to secure the email addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the cutting-edge, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out emails from email addresses created under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails may be taken care of by a different supplier, but when we handle them along with your site, you may also enable an option for your messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This feature provides you with better protection as only our server will be permitted to send out e-mails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. When you have any questions or in case you have any kind of troubles with this service, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew at any time and they will help you right away.
