SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at protecting against the so-called email counterfeiting. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the person opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, thus they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second it is removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux hosting. This is performed via the section with the very same name and you'll be able to enable the protection for each domain name on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you will have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you're able to include several servers too, if needed. When your e-mails are taken care of on our end, you can also take advantage of a more risk-free option by placing a restriction that messages can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This solution can't be applied when your website is here, and your e-mail addresses are with some third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will strongly enhance your online safety and prevent others from counterfeiting your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The SPF protection function comes with all the semi-dedicated servers, so when you host your domain names in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you can activate the service easily for any of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a rather easy to use interface, which means that you will not need to be tech-savvy to protected your email addresses. You will only need to type the hostname and the IP address of each mail server that you'd like to be allowed to send e-mails from your addresses and right after that the updated record will be active for the domain name that you've selected. As an additional option, we'll also allow you to control your outgoing email messages and secure your mailboxes even further by allowing emails to be sent only if the domain name involved features our MX records i.e. the email messages for the domain need to be handled on our end and not by some other supplier. Thus you will get even superior control and there won't be a chance for someone to forge your email addresses for harmful intentions.
