SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some way the person opening it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which has all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic all over the world, thus they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.
SPF Protection in Hosting
SPF protection can be activated for each domain hosted in a hosting account on our cloud hosting platform with just a couple of mouse-clicks. The function can be found in the Emails section of our hi-tech Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate it is to select one of your domain names from a drop-down list and type in the hostnames and the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the e-mail servers which will be permitted to send email messages from your emails. As an added option you can even restrict the email messages to be sent from your domain only if it includes our MX records, in other words when our servers manage the email addresses for it, not some third-party supplier. This feature offers you the top degree of safety, but it is not applicable in case only your web site is on our servers while the email addresses for the domain name are handled somewhere else. Regardless, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses protected from being used for spam or scam purposes.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The SPF protection feature is provided with all of the semi-dedicated hosting, so when you host your domains in an account on our cloud website hosting platform, you are able to activate the service easily for all your domain names. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts, has a very intuitive interface, therefore you don't have to be proficient in the use of computers in order to secure your e-mails. You will only need to type the hostname and the IP address of each mail server that you would like to be certified to send out emails from your addresses and right after that the updated record will be activated for the domain that you've selected. As an extra option, we will also allow you to limit the outgoing emails and secure your mailboxes further by permitting emails to be sent only if the domain name in question has our MX records i.e. the emails for the domain name need to be managed on our end and not by another supplier. By doing this you will enjoy even superior control and there will not be any chances for someone to counterfeit your email addresses for malicious purposes.
