Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from a different, generally with the idea to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record contains all of the email servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be submitted and it'll be removed. When you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam which look as if they have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection option for your domain names with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud service. This carried out from the section with the very same name and you're able to set up the protection for any domain name hosted on our hi-tech cloud platform. Using a very handy interface, all you'll need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be authorized to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to add several servers as well, when needed. When your e-mails are handled by us, you can also take advantage of an even more secure option by placing a restriction that email messages can be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This option cannot be applied if your web site is here, and the emails are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will vastly improve your online protection and prevent other people from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular set of services that you will receive with this kind of hosting. Activating the protection will involve only a couple of easy steps inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even in the event that you haven't used such a feature before, you will not have any type of troubles. Through an exceptionally easy to work with interface, you'll only need to input the details of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the newly made record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any e-mail address for that particular domain and send e-mail messages from a server other than the one you have typed in. This doesn't specifically have to be our mail server, still in case we handle your email messages, you are able to activate an extra level of protection by choosing an option that emails can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only if the domain uses our MX records.
