SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, thus they all will identify whether an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our cloud web hosting plans. This is performed via the section bearing an identical name and you're able to allow the protection for any domain part of our hi-tech cloud platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you'll have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can include several servers too, when needed. In case your emails are taken care of by us, you can also employ a more risk-free option by placing a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This alternative can't be used if your site is hosted here, but the e-mails are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection option can considerably improve your online safety and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
