SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, therefore they all will identify whether an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with each shared web hosting package that we offer and you are able to use it with ease so that you can secure the email addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the cutting-edge, and intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from e-mails created under the domain that you have picked. Your e-mails can be taken care of by some other provider, but when we manage them along with your site, you may also enable an option for messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This solution will provide you with superior security as solely our server will be certified to send email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any sort of problems with this service, you will be able to contact our technical support crew at any time and they'll assist you immediately.
