Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is used to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail, but to seem as being sent from a different one, often with the idea to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all e-mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it will be removed. In case you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam that look as if they have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided by default with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it with ease in order to protect the e-mail addresses for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the cutting-edge, albeit intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server in addition to its hostname -, for instance. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from e-mails generated under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mails may be taken care of by a different company, but if we take care of them along with your website, you can activate the option for emails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This solution gives you even better protection as only our server will be certified to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you have any kind of difficulties with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they will help you right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes as standard with all of our semi-dedicated hosting services, will provide you with an incredibly user-friendly interface to activate the SPF security service for each domain that you host inside your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that then you will only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mails. If the emails are taken care of by us and not by a different provider, you are able to boost the protection level even more and take advantage of an option for your outgoing email messages to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option will provide you with increased control and it'll eliminate any chance of anybody faking your e-mail addresses with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It is not applicable in case just your website is hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform, while your e-mail addresses are managed by another service provider. If you aren't sure what features to select, our tech support staff will assist you 24/7.
