Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to look as being sent from another one, frequently with the idea to fraud the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally have it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it will be removed. When you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails that seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible by default with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you can use it with ease in order to secure the e-mail addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of our state-of-the-art, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server in addition to its hostname -, for instance. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mails from email addresses generated under the domain that you've selected. Your emails may be handled by a different company, but when we manage them in addition to your web site, you can enable an option for e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This option provides you with greater protection as solely our server will be permitted to send email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control.
