Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from another one, ordinarily with the purpose to fraud the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world get it. The record includes all email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be discarded. In the event that you use this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided as standard with every single shared web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to use it without difficulty to protect the e-mails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the outstanding, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the email server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from emails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mail addresses may be managed by a different company, but if we handle them along with your web site, you can also enable an option for emails to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This feature will provide you with superior security as solely our server will be permitted to send email messages from your mailboxes and you will have better control. If you have any questions or if you experience any sort of problems with this service, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they'll give you a hand without delay.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you are able to use the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional set of services that you will receive with this kind of hosting. Starting the protection will involve only a few simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even if you haven't employed such a feature before, you will not have any issues. Using an exceptionally time and effort saving interface, you'll simply need to input the information of the mail server that will be certified to send messages from your addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the newly made record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any e-mail address for that particular domain and send out emails from a server other than the one you have entered. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, still if we take care of your e-mails, you're able to enable an extra level of protection by selecting an option that emails can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only in the event that the domain uses our MX records. Our technical support staff can assist you 24/7 in case you have any questions regarding this service.
