SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at blocking the so-called email forging. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, therefore they all can identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting

The SPF protection option is available as standard with every single shared web hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the e-mails for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, yet intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the email server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from email addresses generated under the domain name that you have selected. Your e-mails can be taken care of by another provider, but if we take care of them together with your site, you can also enable the option for emails to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This option gives you greater protection as exclusively our server will be permitted to send out emails from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any questions or if you have any kind of problems with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they'll give you a hand right away.
