SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, therefore they all can recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You'll be able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all of our Linux website hosting packages. This is performed via the section with an identical name and you'll be able to allow the protection for each domain name on our leading-edge cloud platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you will have to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you're able to include several servers too, when needed. If your email addresses are taken care of on our end, you may also use a more risk-free option by putting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This solution cannot be applied when your site is here, but the email addresses are with some third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will definitely improve your web protection and prevent others from counterfeiting your email addresses.
