Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from another, ordinarily with the objective to fraud the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record contains all mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be forwarded and it'll be discarded. In the event that you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided as standard with each and every cloud website hosting package that we supply and you're able to use it without difficulty to secure the e-mails for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the hi-tech, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the email server as well as its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out emails from email addresses generated under the domain that you have selected. Your email addresses may be handled by a different supplier, but when we take care of them in addition to your website, you may also enable the option for e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature will provide you with even better security as just our server will be certified to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have better control. When you have any questions or in case you experience any issues with this service, you can contact our tech support team at any time and they'll help you right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux semi-dedicated service, provides you with an incredibly easy-to-use interface to activate the SPF security service for any domain that you host in your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that then you'll only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be allowed to send out messages from your email addresses. If the e-mails are taken care of by us and not by another supplier, you will be able to increase the protection level even more and enable an option for your outgoing e-mails to be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option gives you more control and it'll eliminate any chance of anybody counterfeiting your email addresses with the objective of spamming and / or scamming people. It is not applicable if just your site is hosted on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform, while your e-mails are managed by some other provider. If you aren't sure what features to select, our tech support team will help you 24/7.
