SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is placed on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all will recognize if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it's discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages. This is done from the section with an identical name and you're able to allow the protection for each and every domain name part of our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you'll need to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers as well, if needed. In case your e-mail addresses are taken care of on our end, you may also use an even more risk-free option by placing a limit that emails can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be applied when your web site is here, but the e-mails are with a third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection option can definitely improve your web security and prevent other people from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
