Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail, but to look as being sent from a different, often with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all the mail servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the message won't be forwarded and it'll be discarded. In the event that you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all of our Linux cloud packages. This is done via the section with an identical name and you're able to set up the protection for each and every domain on our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a very simple interface, all you'll have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you'll be able to add several servers too, if needed. When your emails are taken care of by us, you can also use an even more secure option by placing a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be applied when your web site is hosted with us, but your e-mails are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection solution will considerably improve your online protection and stop others from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, provides you with an exceptionally easy-to-use interface to activate the SPF protection service for every domain that you host in your new account. A couple of clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that then you'll only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your email addresses. When the emails are handled on our end and not by a different supplier, you are able to boost the protection level even further and benefit from an option for your outgoing emails to be sent only if your domains use our MX records. This option will provide you with better control and it'll eliminate any chance of somebody forging your e-mail addresses with the purpose of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable if just your web site is on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, while your e-mails are managed by some other provider. If you aren't sure what features to select, our tech support staff will help you 24/7.
