Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one address, but to look as being sent from another one, generally with the purpose to fraud the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all email servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. Whenever you employ this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam e-mails that look as if they have been sent by you.
SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You are able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud website hosting services. This is done via the section with an identical name and you'll be able to allow the protection for each and every domain on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. Using a really handy interface, all you need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you're able to include several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mails are handled by us, you can also take advantage of a more secure option by putting a limit that messages can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option cannot be used if your web site is here, but the emails are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will significantly improve your online protection and prevent others from spoofing your email addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated services, provides you with an incredibly intuitive interface to enable the SPF security service for every domain that you host in your new account. A few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that and you'll only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses. If the e-mails are taken care of by us and not by another supplier, you're able to raise the security level even more and benefit from an option for the outgoing e-mails to be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option will provide you with better control and it will eliminate any chance of anyone faking your email addresses with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable in case just your website is hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform, while your emails are managed by another service provider. If you are not sure what features to pick, our tech support staff will assist you 24/7.
