Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different one, typically with the idea to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world receive it. The record includes all of the email servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an email address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. In the event that you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam e-mails which appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible as standard with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and you can use it without any difficulty in order to secure the emails for any domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the hi-tech, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from emails created under the domain that you've selected. Your email addresses can be managed by a different provider, but when we take care of them together with your site, you may also activate an option for messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This solution provides you with greater protection as only our server will be authorized to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you have any kind of problems with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew anytime and they will give you a hand without delay.
