SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Basically, this means sending a message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person opening it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, so they all will recognize if an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible as standard with every single website hosting package that we supply and you will be able to use it without difficulty to protect the emails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of the revolutionary, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the email server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out e-mails from e-mails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your emails may be managed by a different provider, but when we manage them along with your website, you may also activate the option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you superior protection as just our server will be permitted to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any questions or in case you have any kind of issues with this particular service, you can contact our technical support team at any time and they will help you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to employ the SPF protection feature as part of the conventional collection of services that you will receive with this type of web hosting. Enabling the protection involves only a couple of simple steps inside the Hepsia Control Panel, thus even when you have never used this kind of function before, you will not have any issues. Through a very time and effort saving interface, you'll only have to input the details of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your email addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the recently created record propagates, nobody will be able to counterfeit any email for that particular domain and send emails from a server different from the one you've entered. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, still if we handle your e-mails, you will be able to enable one more level of protection by choosing an option that email messages can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only in case the domain uses our MX records. Our technical support crew will be able to help you 24/7 if you have any kind of questions about this service.
