Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from a different, typically with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world have it. The record includes all email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message will not be forwarded and it will be removed. Whenever you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails that look as if they have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web 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 is provided with our Linux cloud web hosting packages. This carried out via the section bearing the same name and you can set up the protection for each domain part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Using a very intuitive interface, all you'll need to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be accredited to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to include several servers too, when needed. In case your emails are handled by us, you can also employ an even more risk-free option by placing a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This alternative cannot be used when your site is hosted with us, and your email addresses are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can greatly enhance your web safety and stop other people from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
