Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from another, frequently with the objective to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target destination. When, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. If you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam that appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided by default with every single website hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty so as to secure the emails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of the advanced, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the mail server as well as its hostname -, for example. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mails from emails generated under the domain that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be handled by some other provider, but when we take care of them along with your website, you may also enable an option for your messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you improved security as just our server will be authorized to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you experience any sort of difficulties with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support crew at any time and they will help you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which is included with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, offers you an extremely intuitive interface to enable the SPF protection service for any domain that you host in your new account. A couple of clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you will only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be allowed to send out messages from your emails. When the emails are taken care of on our end and not by a different supplier, you can increase the security level even more and enable an option for your outgoing email messages to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option gives you increased control and it will eliminate any chance of anyone counterfeiting your email addresses with the objective of spamming or scamming people. It's not applicable if just your site is on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, while your e-mails are managed by another service provider. If you are not sure what features to pick, our technical support crew will help you 24/7.
