SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, so that they all will identify whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You are able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all our shared web hosting. This is performed from the section with the same name and you can enable the protection for each domain on our revolutionary cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, it is possible to add several servers as well, if needed. When your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you can also employ an even more secure option by placing a limit that e-mails can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This alternative can't be applied when your site is hosted here, while your emails are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution can greatly increase your online protection and stop other people from forging your e-mail addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
The SPF protection attribute is featured with all semi-dedicated servers, so in case you host your domain names in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you are able to use this particular service without difficulty for any of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, has a rather easy to use interface, which means that you won't have to be proficient in the use of computers to secure your e-mails. You will only have to type the hostname and the IP address of each mail server that you'd like to be allowed to send out emails from your addresses and right after that the updated record will be activated for the domain name that you have selected. As an extra option, we'll also allow you to limit the outgoing emails and secure your mailboxes even better by permitting emails to be sent only when the domain name involved has our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain should be handled here and not by some other supplier. Thus you'll have even better control and there won't be any chances for anybody to counterfeit your emails for malicious objectives.
