Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email, but to look as being sent from a different, frequently with the objective to fraud the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all of the mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an email address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the given domain, the message will not be sent and it will be discarded. When you use this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible by default with every single website hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to use it with ease so as to protect the emails for each domain hosted as part of your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the innovative, and intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server plus its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mails from e-mails created under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails can be managed by some other supplier, but in case that we handle them in addition to your site, you may also enable an option for your messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This feature gives you improved security as just our server will be certified to send out messages from your mailboxes and you will have better control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any sort of problems with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they will help you without delay.
