Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email address, but to look as being sent from another, usually with the purpose to fraud the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a special record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all of the mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address under the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. Whenever you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails that seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection option is accessible as standard with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you are able to use it without any difficulty so as to protect the e-mail addresses for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the revolutionary, yet easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out email messages from email addresses made under the domain that you have selected. Your e-mails may be handled by a different supplier, but when we manage them in addition to your web site, you may also activate an option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This option provides you with greater protection as only our server will be authorized to send e-mails from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any kind of issues with this service, you'll be able to contact our tech support team at any time and they'll help you right away.
