SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, so that they all can recognize whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You'll be able to activate the SPF protection option for your domains with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in our shared website hosting. This is done from the section bearing the same name and you are able to enable the protection for each domain hosted on our exceptional cloud hosting platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you'll have to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can include several servers too, if needed. When your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you can also use an even more risk-free option by placing a restriction that e-mails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option can't be applied if your web site is here, and the e-mail addresses are with a third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will vastly increase your online protection and prevent other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
