SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called email forging. Basically, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the person opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so that they all can identify if an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from using your emails for malicious purposes.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available by default with each cloud web hosting package that we supply and you can use it without difficulty to protect the e-mails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of our hi-tech, albeit intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the email server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mails from emails made under the domain name that you have selected. Your e-mail addresses may be managed by another provider, but in case that we handle them in addition to your website, you can also activate the option for messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This feature provides you with greater protection as just our server will be approved to send out messages from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. If you have any questions or if you have any issues with this service, you can contact our technical support team anytime and they will assist you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The SPF protection function is featured with all semi-dedicated hosting services, so in case you host your domains in an account on our cloud hosting platform, you can activate this service with ease for all your domain names. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with the semi-dedicated accounts, features a really easy to use interface, so you will not have to be tech-savvy to secure your e-mails. You will only have to type the hostname and the IP of each mail server that you would like to be certified to send out e-mails from your addresses and shortly after that the new record will be active for the domain that you've picked. As a further option, we will also give you the ability to control your outgoing email messages and protect your mailboxes even further by allowing email messages to be sent only when the domain involved features our MX records i.e. the e-mail messages for the domain need to be taken care of here and not by another supplier. By doing this you'll get even superior control and there won't be any chance for anybody to counterfeit your e-mails for malicious uses.
