Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called email 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. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world have it. The record features all the email servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message will not be submitted and it will be removed. Whenever you use this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam e-mails that appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all of our Linux cloud packages. This is done via the section bearing the same name and you're able to enable the protection for each and every domain name part of our exceptional cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you have to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to add several servers too, if needed. When your email addresses are managed by us, you can also take advantage of an even more risk-free option by placing a limit that email messages can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. This option can't be applied when your web site is here, and the emails are with a third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will strongly improve your online protection and prevent others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can protect your email addresses by enabling the SPF security service for any domain hosted in the account with only a couple of mouse-clicks. This can be done from the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts and even when you have no previous experience with such things, you won't have any kind of trouble to activate the protection. The only things that you will have to do will be to choose a domain name from a drop-down menu and after that type in the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. As soon as the new record propagates, messages from your e-mail addresses will be sent globally only if they were sent from that server. If your email addresses are handled by us and not by a third-party supplier, you will also be able to activate an option for email messages to be sent only if the domain includes our MX records and this would be the most secure option. When you have any kind of questions regarding thisfeature, you will be able to get in touch with our tech support team 24/7.
