SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some manner the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, therefore they all can identify if an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Web Hosting
SPF protection can be enabled for each domain hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud platform with no more than a few mouse-clicks. The option can be found in the Emails section of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to use it is to pick one of your domains from a drop-down list and to type in the hostnames and the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the email servers which will be permitted to send email messages from your emails. As an added option you can also restrict the emails to be sent from your domain only when it includes our MX records, in other words if our servers manage the email addresses for it, not a third-party supplier. This feature offers you the top standard of security, but it's not applicable in case only your site is on our servers while your e-mail addresses for the domain are taken care of elsewhere. In either case, the SPF protection service will keep your email addresses risk-free from being used for spam and scam purposes.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, offers you an exceptionally intuitive interface to activate the SPF protection service for every domain that you host inside your new account. A couple of clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that then 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 email addresses. In case the e-mails are taken care of by us and not by some other provider, you'll be able to raise the security level even more and benefit from an option for the outgoing emails to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option will give you increased control and it will eliminate any possibility of anyone faking your e-mail addresses with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable if just your web site is on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, while your e-mail addresses are managed by some other provider.
