SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, so that they all can recognize if an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second it is removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection function is available as standard with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and you're able to use it without any difficulty so as to secure the emails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the innovative, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from emails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mail addresses may be handled by another supplier, but in case that we handle them along with your web site, you can activate an option for e-mails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This feature gives you superior security as just our server will be authorized to send out e-mails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control.
