Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail, but to appear as being sent from another, frequently with the objective to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record includes all of the email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an email address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. If you employ this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam messages which appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided by default with each cloud hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it with ease so that you can protect the e-mails for any domain hosted in your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of our innovative, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server in addition to its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out e-mail messages from email addresses made under the domain name that you have picked. Your emails can be handled by another provider, but if we handle them along with your site, you may also enable an option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This option will provide you with greater security as only our server will be certified to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you have any problems with this service, you can contact our technical support crew anytime and they'll give you a hand right away.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

The SPF protection feature comes with all Linux semi-dedicated plans, so when you host your domains in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use this particular service with ease for all of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes as standard with the semi-dedicated accounts, offers a quite easy to use interface, which means that you don't have to be proficient in the use of computers in order to secure your email addresses. You'll simply need to type the hostname and the IP address of each mail server that you'd like to be permitted to send out e-mails from your addresses and immediately after that the updated record will be activated for the domain that you have chosen. As an additional option, we also give you the ability to control your outgoing email messages and protect your mailboxes even better by allowing email messages to be sent only if the domain involved includes our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain have to be managed by us and not by some other supplier. By doing this you will have even better control and there will not be any chances for somebody to fake your email addresses for malicious activities.
