SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called email faking. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, so they all can identify whether an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection option is accessible as standard with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty so that you can protect the e-mail addresses for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of our state-of-the-art, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send messages from emails made under the domain that you've picked. Your email addresses may be managed by another company, but when we manage them together with your site, you can enable the option for your email messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This option gives you superior security as exclusively our server will be certified to send email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any sort of troubles with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support team anytime and they'll give you a hand immediately.
