SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, so they all can identify whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with every single cloud website hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty so that you can secure the email addresses for any domain hosted within your account. The service is handled from the Emails section of our hi-tech, yet easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out e-mail messages from emails made under the domain name that you've picked. Your email addresses can be handled by a different supplier, but in case that we take care of them together with your site, you can also enable an option for your e-mail messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This option gives you improved security as solely our server will be permitted to send e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of troubles with this service, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew at any time and they'll help you immediately.
