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 some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is kept on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic worldwide, therefore they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with each hosting package that we offer and you will be able to use it without any difficulty to protect the e-mail addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from email addresses generated under the domain that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses may be managed by some other provider, but if we take care of them together with your site, you can also activate an option for emails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This option will provide you with even better protection as exclusively our server will be authorized to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you have any problems with this service, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they'll give you a hand without delay.
