SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all will identify whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can enable the SPF protection service for your domains with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This is performed through the section bearing an identical name and you are able to set up the protection for each and every domain on our innovative cloud platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you will have to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to include several servers too, when needed. If your e-mails are managed by us, you can also take advantage of an even more secure option by placing a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. This alternative cannot be used when your web site is hosted with us, and your emails are with a third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection option can vastly improve your web security and stop other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect your email addresses by activating the SPF protection service for every domain hosted in your account with just a few mouse-clicks. You can do this from the Emails section of our Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts and even if you lack previous experience with these things, you will not have any trouble to activate the security. All that you will need to do is to choose a domain name from a drop-down menu then type the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. The moment the new record propagates, messages from your emails will be delivered around the world only if they're sent from that particular server. In case your e-mail addresses are taken care of by us and not by some third-party provider, you can also use an option for e-mail messages to be mailed only when the domain name includes our MX records and the latter would be the safest option.
