SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the individual opening it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all can recognize if an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection option for your domain names with a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux shared web hosting. This is done from the section bearing the very same name and you can allow the protection for any domain name hosted on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you have to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you're able to add several servers too, when needed. In case your email addresses are handled by us, you may also employ an even more secure option by putting a restriction that e-mails can be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be used in case your website is hosted with us, while the e-mails are with some third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will considerably enhance your web security and stop other people from forging your email addresses.
