Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from a different one, typically with the purpose to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record features all email servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message will not be forwarded and it'll be removed. When you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided as standard with each cloud web hosting plan that we supply and you're able to use it without difficulty so as to protect the emails for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the hi-tech, yet easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails generated under the domain name that you've picked. Your email addresses may be managed by another provider, but if we handle them in addition to your site, you can also enable an option for your email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you greater security as just our server will be approved to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any sort of issues with this service, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew anytime and they will give you a hand in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to benefit from the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular collection of services that you'll receive with this type of website hosting. Starting the protection involves only a few simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even when you have never used such a feature before, you won't have any type of troubles. Through a very time and effort saving interface, you will simply need to insert the information of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently created record propagates, no one will be able to fake any email address for that particular domain name and send e-mails from a server other than the one you've typed in. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, but when we take care of your emails, you can allow an additional level of protection by picking an option that e-mails can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only if the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support crew will be able to help you 24/7 if you have any questions about this service.
