SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, therefore they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided by default with each shared hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it without difficulty so as to protect the email addresses for each domain hosted in your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the state-of-the-art, and easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send e-mails from email addresses made under the domain name that you have picked. Your emails may be taken care of by a different provider, but in case that we handle them in addition to your website, you can activate the option for email messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This selection will provide you with better security as just our server will be permitted to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control.
