SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic internationally, so they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second it is removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Hosting

You'll be able to activate the SPF protection service for your domains with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our Linux hosting packages. This is performed from the section bearing an identical name and you are able to set up the protection for any domain hosted on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you need to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you'll be able to include several servers as well, if needed. If your email addresses are taken care of on our end, you may also use an even more risk-free option by putting a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This alternative can't be used when your site is here, and your emails are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection solution can tremendously improve your online safety and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
