SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic around the world, so that they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with each and every shared hosting plan that we supply and you can use it without difficulty so as to protect the email addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of the hi-tech, and easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out emails from email addresses made under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be handled by some other supplier, but when we take care of them along with your web site, you may also enable the option for emails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records.
