SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, this means sending a message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, so they all can recognize if an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed 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 the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can activate the SPF protection option for your domains with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our Linux cloud website hosting. This is performed from the section bearing the very same name and you'll be able to allow the protection for any domain hosted on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Using a really convenient interface, all you have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to add several servers too, if needed. In case your email addresses are handled by us, you may also take advantage of a more risk-free option by putting a limit that emails can be sent only when your domain names feature our MX records. This solution can't be applied in case your website is hosted here, and your e-mail addresses are with some third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection solution will considerably improve your online safety and prevent others from spoofing your e-mail addresses.
