Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is intended to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email address, but to appear as being sent from a different one, frequently with the purpose to fraud the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record contains all of the mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded 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 sent and it will be discarded. In case you use this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to activate the SPF protection service for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all of our Linux shared web hosting services. This is done from the section bearing an identical name and you can enable the protection for each and every domain name part of our hi-tech cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, it is possible to add several servers too, if needed. If your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you may also use an even more risk-free option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domain names have our MX records. This option cannot be applied in case your website is here, while your email addresses are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection solution can considerably increase your web safety and prevent others from counterfeiting your email addresses.
