SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, so they all can recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it is discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is available by default with each and every web hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it without difficulty in order to secure the e-mails for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the hi-tech, and intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send messages from email addresses created under the domain that you've picked. Your e-mails may be handled by a different company, but in case that we handle them along with your web site, you can enable the option for your emails to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records.
