SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at protecting against the so-called email faking. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, therefore they all can identify if an e-mail message originates from a valid 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, and in the second it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting
SPF protection can be enabled for each domain name hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud hosting platform with no more than a couple of clicks. The function is available in the Emails section of our hi-tech Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to use it is to choose one of your domain names from the drop-down menu and then enter the hostnames plus the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the e-mail servers which will be certified to send emails from your emails. As an added option you may also restrict the email messages to be sent from your domain name only when it has our MX records, in other words if our servers handle the e-mail addresses for it, not a third-party provider. This feature will give you the highest standard of security, but it's not applicable when only your web site is on our servers while your email addresses for the domain are managed in a different place. Either way, the SPF protection service will keep your email addresses risk-free from being used for spam and scam purposes.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all our Linux semi-dedicated services, will provide you with an incredibly easy-to-use interface to activate the SPF protection service for every domain name that you host within your new account. Just a few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that then you'll only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your email addresses. In case the email messages are managed on our end and not by another supplier, you can raise the protection level even further and benefit from an option for all of the outgoing email messages to be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option will provide you with more control and it will eliminate any chance of anyone counterfeiting your e-mail addresses with the intention of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable in case just your site is on our innovative cloud hosting platform, while your emails are managed by another service provider.
