SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is kept on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, therefore they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never gets to the intended 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 Web Hosting
You are able to enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all of our Linux cloud web hosting services. This is performed from the section with an identical name and you can set up the protection for any domain name on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a very simple interface, all you will need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to add several servers too, when needed. If your email addresses are managed on our end, you may also employ an even more secure option by putting a restriction that email messages can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This solution can't be applied when your site is hosted with us, while your e-mail addresses are with some third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option will definitely improve your web protection and prevent others from spoofing your e-mail addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, provides you with an extremely easy-to-use interface to enable the SPF protection service for any domain that you host inside your new account. Just a few clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that then you will only have to type in the hostname and the IP address of the mail server that will be allowed to send out messages from your email addresses. When the email messages are taken care of by us and not by another supplier, you can raise the security level even further and take advantage of an option for the outgoing e-mail messages to be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option will give you more control and it'll eliminate any possibility of anybody faking your e-mail addresses with the purpose of spamming or scamming people. It is not applicable when just your website is on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, while your email addresses are handled by some other service provider. If you are not sure what options to select, our tech support staff will assist you 24/7.
