SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at blocking the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which has all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic worldwide, so that they all can identify if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
The SPF protection function is accessible by default with each and every shared hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to use it without any difficulty in order to secure the email addresses for each domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of the revolutionary, and easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the email server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out emails from e-mails made under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mails can be taken care of by another provider, but when we handle them together with your site, you can activate an option for your e-mail messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This feature provides you with greater security as exclusively our server will be approved to send out emails from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you experience any problems with this service, you can contact our technical support team at any time and they'll help you without delay.
