SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, therefore they all can identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

SPF protection can be enabled for any domain name hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud platform with just a couple of mouse-clicks. The function can be found in the Emails section of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel and what is needed to use it is to choose one of your domain names from the drop-down list and enter the hostnames and the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the e-mail servers that will be permitted to send messages from your email addresses. As an added option you may also restrict the e-mails to be sent from your domain only if it has our MX records, in other words if our servers manage the emails for it, not some third-party supplier. This feature provides you with the best degree of security, but it's not applicable if only your web site is on our servers while the email addresses for the domain name are handled somewhere else. Either way, our SPF protection service will keep your email addresses secure from being used for spam or scam purposes.
