SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, this means sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the person opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic around the world, therefore they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared hosting plans. This carried out via the section bearing the very same name and you're able to set up the protection for each and every domain hosted on our revolutionary cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you will need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you'll be able to add several servers as well, if needed. If your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more risk-free option by setting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be used when your site is here, while the e-mails are with some third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection option can definitely enhance your online protection and prevent others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The SPF protection attribute is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers, so in case you host your domain names in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you can activate this particular service easily for all of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts, offers a rather user-friendly interface, therefore you won't have to be tech-savvy to secure your email addresses. You'll only need to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be certified to send emails from your addresses and right after that the new record will be activated for the domain name that you have selected. As a further option, we also give you the ability to limit the outgoing emails and protect your mailboxes further by allowing email messages to be sent only when the domain in question includes our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain name should be handled here and not by a different provider. In this way you will have even better control and there won't be any chance for someone to counterfeit your emails for harmful uses.
