SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the individual opening it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, so that they all will identify whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
The SPF protection feature is provided by default with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and you're able to use it with ease so as to protect the emails for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the state-of-the-art, and easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails made under the domain name that you have selected. Your e-mails may be managed by some other supplier, but if we handle them in addition to your website, you can activate an option for emails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature gives you greater protection as solely our server will be permitted to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or if you experience any problems with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support team at any time and they will give you a hand right away.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
The SPF protection attribute is featured with all semi-dedicated servers, so if you host your domain names in an account on our cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate this particular service without difficulty for all your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts, offers a rather easy to use interface, which means that you don't need to be tech-savvy in order to protected your e-mails.
