SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, so they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it is removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our shared web hosting. This is done from the section with an identical name and you're able to set up the protection for any domain name on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a really intuitive interface, all you have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to add several servers too, if needed. When your e-mail addresses are taken care of by us, you can also use an even more risk-free option by placing a restriction that e-mails can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This solution can't be used in case your website is hosted with us, and your email addresses are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution can vastly improve your online safety and prevent others from counterfeiting your email addresses.
