SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at blocking the so-called email faking. Essentially, this means sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the individual receiving it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic all over the world, thus they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.
SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in all of our Linux cloud packages. This is done via the section with an identical name and you'll be able to allow the protection for any domain name on our modern cloud platform. Using a really convenient interface, all you'll need to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to include several servers as well, when needed. When your e-mails are taken care of by us, you can also employ a more risk-free option by placing a limit that emails can be sent only when your domain names feature our MX records. This option cannot be used when your web site is hosted with us, while the e-mail addresses are with a third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution will vastly increase your web security and stop others from spoofing your email addresses.
SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages, offers you an extremely easy-to-use interface to activate the SPF protection service for every domain name that you host inside your new account. Several clicks in the Emails section of Hepsia will be enough for that then you will only have to enter the hostname and the IP address of the mail server which will be allowed to send out messages from your e-mail addresses. In case the email messages are taken care of on our end and not by a different provider, you can increase the security level even further and take advantage of an option for all of the outgoing e-mail messages to be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option will give you better control and it'll eliminate any chance of somebody counterfeiting your e-mail addresses with the objective of spamming and scamming people. It's not applicable if just your website is hosted on our advanced cloud hosting platform, while your email addresses are handled by some other provider. If you are not sure what options to choose, our tech support staff will assist you 24/7.
