Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is intended to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from another, ordinarily with the objective to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world get it. The record contains all the email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an email address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be removed. In the event that you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided as standard with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and you can use it without difficulty so that you can protect the email addresses for any domain hosted in your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of our advanced, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send emails from e-mails created under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be managed by a different supplier, but when we handle them in addition to your web site, you can also activate the option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This option will provide you with improved protection as only our server will be approved to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any questions or in case you experience any kind of problems with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they'll help you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The SPF protection attribute is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, so when you host your domain names in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use this service easily for all of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts, has a very intuitive interface, which means that you don't have to be proficient in the use of computers to secure your e-mails. You'll simply have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be allowed to send out e-mails from your addresses and right after that the updated record will be activated for the domain that you've picked. As a further option, we also give you the ability to limit your outgoing email messages and secure your mailboxes even further by allowing email messages to be sent only if the domain name involved has our MX records i.e. the email messages for the domain have to be taken care of on our end and not by some other supplier. Doing so you'll get even superior control and there won't be any chance for anyone to fake your e-mails for malicious objectives.
