SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, thus they all will recognize if an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your domains in a cloud website hosting account with us and we manage the e-mail addresses for them, you will be able to enable SPF protection for them with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service can be found in a section of its own where you can see which domains are already secured. For those which aren't, you can activate the SPF protection service and set up a variety of things during this process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are permitted to send messages from your e-mails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of these servers, and even to create a rule that emails can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. The last mentioned choice is the most secure one, and you can use it in the event that we take care of the email addresses for your domains and you are not using some other e-mail service provider. The newly generated records will propagate within one day and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in a message by using your addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are able to benefit from the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular collection of services that you will get using this kind of website hosting. Activating the protection requires just a few simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even when you haven't employed this kind of feature before, you will not have any kind of troubles. Using an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, you'll just need to input the details of the mail server which will be certified to send out messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently created record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any email address for that particular domain name and send email messages from a server different from the one you've typed in. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, yet if we manage your e-mails, you'll be able to activate an additional level of protection by picking an option that e-mail messages can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only in the event that the domain uses our MX records. Our tech support crew will be able to help you 24/7 in case you have any kind of questions regarding this service.
