Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from a different one, frequently with the objective to fraud the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally get it. The record features all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it'll be discarded. Whenever you use this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails which appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with each and every shared web hosting package that we offer and you can use it with ease so as to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of the hi-tech, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type the IP of the mail server plus its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from e-mails made under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mails can be taken care of by a different provider, but when we manage them together with your web site, you may also enable the option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This solution gives you better security as just our server will be approved to send emails from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. When you have any questions or if you experience any kind of troubles with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our tech support team anytime and they will assist you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with our semi-dedicated service, provides you with a really intuitive interface to activate the SPF protection service for each domain name that you host inside your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that and you'll only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be allowed to send out messages from your email addresses. When the emails are taken care of on our end and not by a different supplier, you will be able to raise the security level even further and enable an option for your outgoing emails to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option provides you with better control and it will eliminate any possibility of anyone forging your e-mails with the purpose of spamming or scamming people. It's not applicable when only your web site is hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform, while your email addresses are managed by another provider.
