SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic globally, so they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided by default with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you can use it with ease so that you can secure the email addresses for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of our revolutionary, yet easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send messages from email addresses made under the domain that you have picked. Your e-mails can be taken care of by some other provider, but if we handle them together with your web site, you can also activate the option for email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This option gives you improved security as exclusively our server will be authorized to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control.
