SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email forging. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, thus they all will identify whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided as standard with each shared hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it without difficulty to protect the emails for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of our innovative, yet intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type the IP of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send messages from e-mails made under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails can be taken care of by a different company, but if we manage them in addition to your website, you may also enable an option for messages to be sent only if the domain has our MX records. This solution gives you improved protection as exclusively our server will be permitted to send email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of troubles with this particular service, you can contact our technical support team at any time and they will help you right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that comes as standard with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will provide you with an extremely user-friendly interface to activate the SPF security service for each domain name that you host in your new account. A few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia are enough for that and you will only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be allowed to send out messages from your email addresses. When the e-mail messages are managed by us and not by some other supplier, you're able to increase the security level even further and take advantage of an option for all the outgoing email messages to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option will provide you with more control and it'll eliminate any possibility of anybody counterfeiting your e-mails with the intention of spamming and scamming people. It is not applicable if only your web site is on our modern cloud web hosting platform, while your e-mail addresses are handled by another service provider. If you are not sure what features to choose, our technical support crew will help you 24/7.
