SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email forging. Essentially, this means sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the person receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, so that they all will identify if an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

You're able to activate the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our shared service. This carried out through the section with the same name and you'll be able to set up the protection for each domain on our modern cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you will have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can add several servers as well, when needed. In case your email addresses are handled by us, you may also take advantage of an even more secure option by placing a restriction that e-mails can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. This option can't be applied when your web site is hosted with us, and your e-mails are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will strongly enhance your online security and prevent others from counterfeiting your email addresses.
