Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail address, but to look as being sent from a different one, typically with the objective to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all the email servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target destination. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. In the event that you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided as standard with each shared website hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the e-mail addresses for each domain hosted in your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of our cutting-edge, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server and its hostname -, for example. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out messages from email addresses created under the domain name that you've picked. Your emails can be handled by some other supplier, but if we take care of them along with your website, you can also activate an option for email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you superior security as only our server will be authorized to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. When you have any questions or in case you have any problems with this service, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew anytime and they'll give you a hand right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to secure your emails by activating the SPF security service for any domain name in your account with only a few clicks. You can do this through the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts and even if you have no previous practical experience with these kinds of issues, you won't have any trouble to activate the protection. All that you'll have to do will be to find a domain from a drop-down menu then type in the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. Once the updated record propagates, messages from your email addresses will be sent around the world only if they're sent from that specific server. In case your e-mail addresses are managed by our company and not by some third-party supplier, you can also activate an option for e-mail messages to be mailed only if the domain includes our MX records and this is the most secure option.
