SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some way the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, so that they all will identify 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 e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it is removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all our shared web hosting. This is done from the section bearing the very same name and you can set up the protection for each domain name hosted on our modern cloud hosting platform. Using a very handy interface, all you will have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers too, when needed. In case your emails are handled by us, you may also take advantage of an even more secure option by putting a limit that emails can be sent only when your domains include our MX records. This option can't be applied if your web site is hosted here, while your emails are with a third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will definitely improve your web security and prevent other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
