SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email counterfeiting. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, thus they all will recognize if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to use it without difficulty so that you can protect the emails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the innovative, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from email addresses created under the domain that you have picked. Your emails can be managed by another company, but when we handle them in addition to your site, you may also enable the option for your emails to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This selection provides you with improved security as just our server will be authorized to send email messages from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you have any kind of problems with this service, you will be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they will help you immediately.
