SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called email forging. Essentially, this means sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, therefore they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux cloud hosting. This is done from the section bearing the very same name and you're able to allow the protection for each and every domain name on our revolutionary cloud platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you need to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send out messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you're able to include several servers as well, if needed. If your e-mails are handled on our end, you can also employ a more secure option by placing a restriction that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. This alternative can't be used in case your website is hosted with us, and your e-mail addresses are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection option will considerably enhance your online protection and prevent others from spoofing your email addresses.
