Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is intended to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from another, often with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a unique record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record contains all mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an email address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be forwarded and it will be removed. When you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages that appear to have been sent by you.
SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can activate the SPF protection service for your domains with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in our cloud hosting. This is performed through the section bearing the same name and you're able to set up the protection for each and every domain name hosted on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Using a really simple interface, all you need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can include several servers too, if needed. In case your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you can also employ a more secure option by setting a limit that emails can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This solution can't be applied when your web site is here, and your e-mail addresses are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option can greatly increase your web safety and prevent other people from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, that is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service, will provide you with an exceptionally easy-to-use interface to enable the SPF protection service for any domain that you host within your new account. A few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that and you will only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses. In case the email messages are taken care of on our end and not by some other provider, you will be able to raise the security level even further and benefit from an option for all of the outgoing emails to be sent only if your domains use our MX records. This option provides you with more control and it'll eliminate any possibility of anybody faking your email addresses with the intention of spamming or scamming people. It's not applicable if just your web site is on our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform, while your email addresses are handled by a different service provider. If you aren't sure what options to choose, our technical support crew will help you 24/7.
