Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from another one, typically with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record includes all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be sent and it will be removed. Whenever you employ this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided as standard with each shared web hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty in order to protect the email addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of the outstanding, and easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the email server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails created under the domain name that you've selected. Your emails can be managed by another supplier, but when we manage them along with your web site, you may also enable the option for emails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This option will provide you with superior protection as only our server will be authorized to send out e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or in case you have any sort of problems with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support team at any time and they will help you right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to employ the SPF protection feature as part of the standard collection of services that you'll get with this kind of hosting. Enabling the protection will involve only a few simple steps inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even in case you have never used this kind of feature before, you won't have any problems. Employing an exceptionally easy-to-navigate interface, you will only need to insert the details of the mail server which will be authorized to send out messages from your addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently generated record propagates, nobody will be able to forge any email address for that particular domain name and send out e-mails from a server other than the one you have typed in. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, but when we handle your e-mails, you will be able to allow one more level of security by choosing an option that e-mail messages can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only in case the domain employs our MX records. Our technical support crew will be able to help you 24/7 in case you have any questions regarding this service.
