SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is stored on all DNS servers that route the web traffic around the world, so that they all will identify if an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it is removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.
SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
The SPF protection option is accessible as standard with every single cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you are able to use it without difficulty so that you can secure the e-mails for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of the cutting-edge, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from emails made under the domain that you have selected. Your e-mails can be handled by some other company, but if we take care of them along with your website, you may also enable the option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This selection provides you with better security as solely our server will be certified to send emails from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. When you have any questions or if you have any kind of troubles with this service, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they will help you immediately.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that comes as standard with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, offers you an extremely user-friendly interface to activate the SPF protection service for any domain that you host in your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you'll only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your emails. In case the e-mail messages are managed by us and not by some other supplier, you can raise the protection level even further and take advantage of an option for your outgoing emails to be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option gives you better control and it will eliminate any chance of anyone faking your e-mails with the intention of spamming and scamming people. It is not applicable in case just your web site is on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, while your email addresses are managed by another provider. If you aren't sure what features to choose, our tech support team will help you 24/7.
