SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person getting it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, therefore they all will recognize if an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it is removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

You'll be able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux web hosting. This is performed through the section with an identical name and you are able to set up the protection for any domain on our exceptional cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you'll have to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can include several servers too, when needed. In case your emails are managed on our end, you can also use an even more risk-free option by setting a limit that messages can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. This option cannot be applied in case your website is here, while the emails are with some third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can greatly increase your web protection and stop others from forging your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The SPF protection feature is featured with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host your domain names in an account on our cloud website hosting platform, you can use the service without difficulty for all of your domain names. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a very easy to work with interface, therefore you don't have to be tech-savvy to secure your emails. You will simply have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be authorized to send e-mails from your addresses and immediately after that the new record will be active for the domain name that you have selected. As an additional option, we also give you the ability to limit the outgoing e-mail messages and secure your mailboxes even better by allowing emails to be sent only when the domain involved contains our MX records i.e. the emails for the domain have to be managed here and not by some other provider. By doing this you'll get even better control and there won't be any chances for somebody to forge your e-mail addresses for harmful purposes.
