SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, so that they all will recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible as standard with every single shared hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the email addresses for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the e-mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out e-mail messages from email addresses created under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails may be managed by another supplier, but if we take care of them along with your site, you can also activate an option for your email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This option gives you superior security as solely our server will be permitted to send messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or if you experience any kind of issues with this particular service, you will be able to contact our tech support team anytime and they'll give you a hand without delay.
