SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called email faking. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which has all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, thus they all will recognize whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.
SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting
You're able to activate the SPF protection service for your domains with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all our cloud hosting plans. This is done via the section bearing the same name and you'll be able to allow the protection for each domain on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you will need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to include several servers as well, if needed. When your e-mail addresses are handled by us, you can also take advantage of a more secure option by setting a limit that e-mails can be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This alternative can't be applied in case your web site is hosted with us, while the email addresses are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection option can definitely improve your web security and prevent other people from forging your email addresses.

If you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular set of services that you'll get with this kind of web hosting. Enabling the protection requires only several simple steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore even if you haven't employed this kind of feature before, you won't have any type of problems. Using an exceptionally easy-to-use interface, you'll simply need to type in the details of the mail server which will be certified to send messages from your email addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). As soon as the recently generated record propagates, no one will be able to forge any email address for that particular domain name and send out email messages from a server different from the one you've entered. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, still in case we take care of your email messages, you can allow an extra level of protection by selecting an option that e-mail messages can be send from addresses @your-domain.com only in the event that the domain employs our MX records.
