Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is intended to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email address, but to appear as being sent from another one, frequently with the objective to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally get it. The record contains all of the email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message will not be submitted and it will be removed. If you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails which appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux website hosting. This is done via the section with an identical name and you can allow the protection for any domain hosted on our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a really intuitive interface, all you have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to include several servers too, when needed. When your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you may also use a more risk-free option by placing a limit that messages can be sent only if your domain names have our MX records. This solution can't be used if your website is hosted here, and your emails are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection solution will definitely improve your web safety and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, so when you host your domains in an account on our cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate this service easily for all of your domain names. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, has a really intuitive interface, which means that you will not need to be tech-savvy to secure your emails. You'll only have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be authorized to send out emails from your addresses and right after that the updated record will be activated for the domain that you've selected. As an extra option, we also give you the ability to control the outgoing emails and protect your mailboxes even better by permitting emails to be sent only if the domain name in question contains our MX records i.e. the emails for the domain name should be taken care of here and not by a different provider. Doing so you'll get even better control and there won't be any chance for someone to fake your e-mail addresses for malicious objectives.
