SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending a message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the individual opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, so that they all can recognize if an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided by default with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to use it with ease to protect the e-mail addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of the innovative, and easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out messages from email addresses made under the domain that you have selected. Your emails can be handled by another supplier, but in case that we manage them in addition to your website, you can enable the option for messages to be sent only if the domain has our MX records. This option provides you with greater security as just our server will be authorized to send email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any questions or in case you have any kind of troubles with this service, you can contact our technical support crew anytime and they will give you a hand without delay.
