SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all will identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our website hosting plans. This carried out from the section bearing an identical name and you are able to set up the protection for each and every domain name hosted on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you'll need to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can add several servers too, when needed. When your e-mail addresses are managed by us, you may also take advantage of an even more risk-free option by setting a limit that messages can be sent only when your domains include our MX records. This option can't be applied when your website is hosted with us, while the email addresses are with some third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection solution will significantly enhance your web safety and prevent other people from spoofing your e-mail addresses.
