Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail, but to appear as being sent from another one, often with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally get it. The record contains all e-mail servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an address under the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the message won't be sent and it will be removed. If you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages which look as if they have been sent from you.
SPF Protection in Web Hosting
You'll be able to enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our web hosting. This is performed through the section with the very same name and you can allow the protection for each domain name hosted on our outstanding cloud platform. Using a really intuitive interface, all you need to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to add several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mail addresses are taken care of by us, you may also employ an even more secure option by putting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option can't be used if your site is here, while your emails are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can vastly improve your web security and stop others from spoofing your e-mail addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can benefit from the SPF protection feature as part of the conventional group of services that you'll receive with this kind of website hosting. Starting the protection will require only a few simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even in the event that you have never employed this kind of function before, you won't have any type of troubles. Employing an exceptionally intuitive interface, you'll just have to enter the info of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your email addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently made record propagates, no one will be able to counterfeit any email address for that particular domain name and send messages from a server different from the one you have entered. This does not necessarily have to be our mail server, yet if we manage your e-mails, you're able to allow an extra level of protection by selecting an option that email messages can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only in the event that the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support crew can assist you 24/7 in case you have any questions regarding this service.
