SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, thus they all can recognize if an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided as standard with each and every hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to use it with ease to secure the emails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of our state-of-the-art, yet intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from e-mails made under the domain that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be managed by some other provider, but in case that we manage them in addition to your web site, you may also activate an option for your messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This feature will provide you with superior security as exclusively our server will be authorized to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you experience any sort of troubles with this particular service, you can contact our tech support team anytime and they will assist you without delay.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure your emails by activating the SPF security service for every domain hosted in the account with only a few clicks. You can do this in the Emails section of our Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts and even when you have no previous experience with these things, you won't have any trouble to enable the protection. The only things that you'll need to do will be to choose a domain from a drop-down list and then type the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. As soon as the updated record propagates, messages from your emails will be sent globally only if they are sent from that specific server. When your e-mail addresses are taken care of by our company and not by some third-party provider, you can also take advantage of an option for email messages to be mailed only when the domain name contains our MX records and the latter would be the safest option.
