SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the person receiving it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all DNS servers that route the web traffic across the globe, so that they all can identify whether an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection option is available by default with each cloud hosting plan that we supply and you can use it without any difficulty in order to protect the email addresses for any domain hosted within your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of our innovative, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out e-mails from email addresses made under the domain name that you have selected. Your email addresses may be handled by a different provider, but if we handle them along with your site, you can also activate the option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This option provides you with even better protection as just our server will be approved to send out messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any kind of troubles with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support team anytime and they will assist you without delay.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting, will provide you with a really user-friendly interface to activate the SPF protection service for every domain that you host within your new account. A couple of clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that then you will only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be allowed to send out messages from your e-mail addresses. In case the e-mails are managed on our end and not by some other provider, you'll be able to boost the protection level even more and take advantage of an option for your outgoing e-mails to be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This option gives you better control and it will eliminate any chance of someone forging your e-mails with the objective of spamming and scamming people.
