Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one address, but to seem as being sent from a different one, ordinarily with the idea to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers worldwide have it. The record contains all the mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an email address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message will not be submitted and it will be removed. In case you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam which appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Hosting

The SPF protection option is accessible as standard with each and every hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it without difficulty to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, yet intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type the IP of the email server plus its hostname -, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from emails made under the domain that you have picked. Your emails can be taken care of by another company, but in case that we manage them together with your website, you can enable an option for messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This selection gives you improved security as just our server will be approved to send email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or if you have any kind of problems with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support team at any time and they will give you a hand immediately.
