Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from another one, often with the purpose to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record contains all the email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an email address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and if the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be sent and it'll be removed. In case you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You are able to activate the SPF protection option for your domain names with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our cloud plans. This is performed via the section bearing an identical name and you are able to enable the protection for any domain part of our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. Using a very convenient interface, all you need to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you're able to add several servers too, when needed. If your e-mails are managed by us, you may also employ a more risk-free option by setting a restriction that messages can be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records. This option cannot be used in case your site is hosted here, while the e-mail addresses are with some third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution will significantly increase your web protection and prevent others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
