SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the person receiving it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is kept on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, so that they all can identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it is removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided by default with each cloud web hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it without difficulty so as to protect the emails for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is handled from the Emails section of our cutting-edge, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the email server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out emails from emails created under the domain that you've selected. Your emails may be handled by another supplier, but in case that we manage them together with your web site, you can activate the option for e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This selection will provide you with improved protection as exclusively our server will be approved to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. If you have any questions or if you experience any sort of troubles with this service, you can contact our technical support crew anytime and they will give you a hand in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service, provides you with an incredibly user-friendly interface to activate the SPF protection service for any domain that you host in your new account. A few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you will only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be allowed to send messages from your email addresses. If the emails are managed by us and not by a different supplier, you will be able to boost the protection level even further and benefit from an option for all of the outgoing e-mail messages to be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option will provide you with better control and it'll eliminate any possibility of someone counterfeiting your e-mails with the intention of spamming or scamming people. It is not applicable if only your web site is on our modern cloud hosting platform, while your emails are managed by a different service provider. If you are not sure what features to select, our tech support team will help you 24/7.
