SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the web traffic around the world, thus they all will recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our Linux cloud hosting. This carried out from the section with the same name and you can allow the protection for each and every domain name hosted on our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a very intuitive interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can add several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mails are managed by us, you can also use a more secure option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This alternative can't be applied in case your website is hosted with us, while your emails are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will vastly enhance your web security and prevent other people from forging your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure your email addresses by activating the SPF security service for every domain name in the account with just a couple of clicks. This is done from the Emails section of our Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts and even when you have no previous practical experience with such issues, you won't have any trouble to enable the protection. Everything that you'll need to do will be to pick a domain name from a drop-down list and then type the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. When the new record propagates, messages from your email addresses will be sent globally only if they are sent from that specific server. If your email addresses are managed by our company and not by some third-party supplier, you can also benefit from an option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain name features our MX records and the latter would be the safest option.
