SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, therefore they all will recognize if an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
The SPF protection function is provided as standard with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it without difficulty so that you can protect the e-mails for each domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of our advanced, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need 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. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out emails from e-mails created under the domain that you have picked. Your email addresses can be handled by another supplier, but if we take care of them along with your web site, you can also activate the option for emails to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you better security as solely our server will be permitted to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of difficulties with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they'll give you a hand in a timely manner.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The SPF protection function is featured with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting, so if you host your domain names in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you're able to use this particular service without difficulty for all of your domains. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a very user-friendly interface, which means that you will not need to be tech-savvy to secure your e-mails. You will only have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you'd like to be authorized to send emails from your addresses and immediately after that the updated record will be activated for the domain that you've chosen. As an extra option, we also allow you to restrict your outgoing e-mail messages and protect your mailboxes even better by allowing emails to be sent only when the domain name involved includes our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain name need to be handled here and not by some other provider. By doing so you will get even superior control and there won't be a chance for somebody to fake your e-mails for harmful objectives.
