Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is intended to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different, typically with the idea to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record includes all the mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. Whenever you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails which look as if they have been sent from you.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
You are able to activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our shared plans. This carried out via the section bearing the same name and you can set up the protection for each domain name on our leading-edge cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you'll need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to include several servers too, if needed. When your e-mails are handled by us, you can also take advantage of a more risk-free option by putting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This solution cannot be used when your website is hosted with us, while your email addresses are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection option will vastly improve your online safety and prevent other people from forging your e-mail addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you are able to benefit from the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional group of services that you'll receive with this kind of website hosting. Activating the protection will involve just a few simple steps inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even if you have never used this type of function before, you won't have any problems. Employing a really user-friendly interface, you'll simply need to input the details of the mail server that will be permitted to send messages from your addresses - its hostname ( and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). As soon as the recently generated record propagates, no one will be able to fake any email address for that particular domain name and send out emails from a server other than the one you have entered. This does not specifically have to be our mail server, but when we manage your email messages, you can activate an additional level of security by selecting an option that e-mail messages can be send out from addresses only in the event that the domain uses our MX records. Our technical support team can assist you 24/7 in case you have any kind of questions related to this service.
