Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from another, generally with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world get it. The record features all mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an email address within the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it'll be removed. In case you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam e-mails which look as if they have been sent by you.
SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting
The SPF protection function is provided by default with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the e-mail addresses for any domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of the revolutionary, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server as well as its hostname -, for instance. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mails from email addresses generated under the domain that you have picked. Your e-mail addresses can be taken care of by another provider, but in case that we handle them together with your site, you can enable an option for your emails to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This option will provide you with superior security as solely our server will be permitted to send e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. If you have any questions or if you experience any problems with this particular service, you will be able to contact our tech support crew at any time and they'll help you immediately.
