SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some way the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, therefore they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Web Hosting
You are able to activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our web hosting. This is done from the section with the very same name and you are able to enable the protection for each and every domain part of our advanced cloud platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you need to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you'll be able to include several servers as well, if needed. When your e-mails are managed on our end, you can also employ a more risk-free option by placing a restriction that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domain names have our MX records. This option can't be applied in case your web site is here, but your e-mail addresses are with some third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will definitely enhance your web safety and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
