SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the person getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, so they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The check is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux cloud web hosting services. This is performed from the section with the very same name and you're able to allow the protection for any domain hosted on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. Using a really simple interface, all you will need to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you're able to add several servers as well, if needed. If your email addresses are handled by us, you may also use an even more secure option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only when your domains feature our MX records. This option can't be used when your website is here, while your e-mail addresses are with a third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will tremendously increase your online security and prevent other people from forging your e-mail addresses.
