SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, this means sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the very 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 gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

When you host your domain names in a cloud hosting account with us and we manage the emails for them, you are able to activate SPF protection for all of them with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service can be found in a separate section where you will be able to view which domain names are already protected. For the ones which aren't, you can enable the SPF protection option and set up a variety of things at the same time - the hostnames of the mail servers that are permitted to send messages from your mailboxes, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of the servers, and to create a rule that messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. The aforementioned choice is the most secure one, but you can use it in the event that we manage the emails for your domain names and you are not using another email provider. The newly generated records will propagate within 1 day and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in an e-mail using your addresses.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the regular collection of services that you will receive with this type of website hosting. Activating the protection will require only a few easy steps in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even in the event that you've never used this type of feature before, you won't have any type of issues. Employing a really easy-to-navigate interface, you will simply need to insert the details of the mail server that will be certified to send messages from your addresses - its hostname (mail.server.com) and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). As soon as the recently made record propagates, no one will be able to fake any e-mail for that particular domain and send out messages from a server other than the one you've typed in. This doesn't necessarily have to be our mail server, yet if we handle your e-mails, you can allow one more level of protection by selecting an option that e-mail messages can be send out from addresses @your-domain.com only in case the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support crew will be able to help you 24/7 in case you have any questions related to this service.
