SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is placed on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, thus they all can identify if an email message originates from a trustworthy 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, and in the second it is discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting
The SPF protection option is available as standard with every single shared web hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it without difficulty to secure the e-mail addresses for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, yet easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from email addresses created under the domain that you have selected. Your e-mail addresses may be handled by another supplier, but if we take care of them in addition to your site, you may also enable an option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This feature gives you improved security as just our server will be approved to send emails from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any sort of problems with this particular service, you will be able to contact our tech support team at any time and they'll give you a hand right away.
