Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is employed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one address, but to seem as being sent from another, generally with the idea to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, a unique record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record features all of the mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an email address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. If you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails which seem to have been sent by you.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
The SPF protection option is accessible by default with every single shared hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it with ease in order to protect the e-mails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the revolutionary, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server plus its hostname -, for example. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from emails created under the domain name that you have picked. Your emails may be handled by some other provider, but if we handle them in addition to your website, you can activate the option for your messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This feature provides you with superior security as exclusively our server will be certified to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of issues with this service, you can contact our tech support crew anytime and they'll give you a hand without delay.
