SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email faking. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic around the world, thus they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your domain names in a shared web hosting account with us and we manage the e-mails for them, you will be able to enable SPF protection for any of them with several clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The service can be found in its own section where you can see which domain names are currently secured. For the ones that are not, you can enable the SPF protection solution and manage numerous things during the process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are allowed to send messages from your e-mails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of these servers, and to set a rule that messages can be sent only if your domains use our MX records. The aforementioned choice is the most secure one, and it can be used when we take care of the emails for your domain names and do not use some other email supplier. The new records will propagate within one day and nobody will be able to forge the FROM field in a message with your addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to benefit from the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional collection of services that you will receive using this type of web hosting. Starting the protection will require only several easy steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore even when you have never employed such a feature before, you will not have any problems. Through an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, you will only need to insert the information of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). As soon as the recently generated record propagates, no one will be able to forge any e-mail address for that particular domain and send out messages from a server different from the one you've typed in. This does not necessarily have to be our mail server, but when we take care of your e-mails, you can enable an additional level of protection by choosing an option that e-mails can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only in case the domain uses our MX records. Our technical support staff can help you 24/7 if you have any questions regarding this service.
