SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, so that they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

SPF protection can be enabled for each domain name hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform with no more than a couple of mouse-clicks. The function is accessible in the Emails section of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel and all you need to activate it is to choose one of your domains from the drop-down menu and then type in the hostnames along with the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the e-mail servers that will be approved to send emails from your email addresses. As an added option you can even restrict the email messages to be sent from your domain name only if it includes our MX records, in other words if our servers handle the email addresses for it, not some third-party supplier. This solution gives you the top standard of security, but it is not applicable when only your web site is on our servers while the email addresses for the domain name are taken care of elsewhere. In either case, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses risk-free from being used for spam or scam purposes.
