SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, so that they all will recognize whether an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can activate the SPF protection service for your domains with a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with our Linux cloud hosting. This is done through the section with the same name and you can set up the protection for each and every domain on our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you will have to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send messages from your email addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to include several servers too, when needed. If your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you may also employ a more risk-free option by setting a restriction that e-mails can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This alternative can't be applied if your web site is hosted with us, while the emails are with a third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will greatly enhance your online safety and stop other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
