Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another, frequently with the purpose to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record features all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an address under the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be submitted and it'll be removed. In case you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam e-mails that look as if they have been sent from you.

You are able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud web hosting plans. This carried out from the section bearing an identical name and you're able to enable the protection for any domain hosted on our innovative cloud platform. Using a really intuitive interface, all you will have to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you can include several servers too, when needed. When your e-mail addresses are taken care of by us, you can also employ a more secure option by putting a limit that e-mails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This solution can't be used if your web site is hosted here, and the e-mails are with a third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection option can significantly improve your online security and prevent other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
