SPF, which stands for Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail security system, which is used to validate whether an e-mail message is sent by a licensed server. Using SPF protection for a particular domain will prevent the forging of email addresses created with the domain. In simple words: enabling this feature for a domain name makes a special record in the Domain Name System (DNS) containing the IP addresses of the servers that are permitted to send e-mails from mail boxes using the domain. The moment this record propagates globally, it will exist on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic. Whenever a new email message is sent, the initial DNS server it goes through verifies if it comes from an accredited server. If it does, it's sent to the destination address, yet if it does not originate from a server listed in the SPF record for the particular domain, it's rejected. Thus nobody will be able to mask an email address to make it appear as if you're e-mailing spam. This technique is also termed email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Hosting

You'll be able to activate the SPF protection option for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our hosting. This carried out via the section with the very same name and you'll be able to set up the protection for each domain name on our leading-edge cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to include several servers as well, if needed. In case your e-mail addresses are managed on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more risk-free option by setting a restriction that email messages can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This alternative can't be used in case your website is hosted with us, but the emails are with a third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will significantly improve your online safety and stop others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
