SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so they all will identify if 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 e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided by default with each shared website hosting package that we offer and you will be able to use it with ease so as to secure the email addresses for each domain hosted as part of your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of the cutting-edge, yet easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send emails from emails made under the domain that you have selected. Your email addresses may be managed by a different company, 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 solution provides you with superior protection as exclusively our server will be certified to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any kind of difficulties with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they will assist you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to secure your email addresses by enabling the SPF security service for any domain in your account with only a couple of mouse-clicks.

The only things that you will have to do is to find a domain name from a drop-down menu and after that type in the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. When the updated record propagates, messages from your e-mail addresses will be mailed around the world only if they are sent from that particular server. If your emails are taken care of by us and not by some third-party supplier, you will also be able to benefit from an option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain name includes our MX records and the aforementioned would be the most secure option.
