SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some way the person receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which has all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, thus they all can identify whether an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection option for your domains with a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with our cloud hosting plans. This is done from the section with an identical name and you'll be able to set up the protection for each and every domain on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you'll have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers as well, if needed. In case your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you may also use an even more risk-free option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only when your domain names have our MX records. This option can't be used when your site is hosted here, and the e-mails are with a third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will tremendously enhance your online protection and prevent others from forging your email addresses.

Through a very easy to work with interface, you'll just have to enter the details of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your e-mail addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the recently generated record propagates, no one will be able to forge any e-mail address for that particular domain and send e-mails from a server other than the one you've typed in. This doesn't specifically have to be our mail server, however in case we manage your e-mails, you are able to allow an extra level of protection by picking an option that e-mail messages can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only if the domain employs our MX records.
