SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the person getting it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic around the world, so that they all will recognize whether an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided as standard with each and every shared hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty in order to secure the emails for any domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of our advanced, yet easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from emails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mails may be handled by some other company, but in case that we handle them in addition to your web site, you can also activate the option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature provides you with better security as only our server will be certified to send emails from your mailboxes and you will have better control.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to use the SPF protection feature as a part of the standard collection of services that you will get using this type of web hosting. Enabling the protection involves only a couple of simple steps in the Hepsia Control Panel, thus even if you haven't used this type of function before, you will not have any kind of troubles. Through a very easy-to-navigate interface, you'll only have to insert the details of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently created record propagates, no one will be able to forge any email for that particular domain and send e-mail messages from a server different from the one you have typed in. This doesn't specifically have to be our mail server, still when we manage your email messages, you're able to allow an additional level of security by selecting an option that e-mail messages can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only in case the domain employs our MX records. Our technical support crew can assist you 24/7 if you have any questions related to this service.
