SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, so they all can recognize whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud services. This is done through the section with the very same name and you'll be able to enable the protection for any domain name hosted on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Using a very user-friendly interface, all you will need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, it is possible to add several servers too, when needed. If your e-mail addresses are taken care of by us, you may also take advantage of a more secure option by placing a limit that e-mails can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This solution cannot be applied in case your website is here, and the email addresses are with a third-party supplier. In either case, the SPF protection solution can considerably increase your online protection and prevent others from forging your email addresses.
