Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different one, often with the objective to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record features all email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. If you employ this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam e-mails which appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection function is provided as standard with each cloud hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to use it with ease in order to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the state-of-the-art, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the email server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send emails from email addresses generated under the domain that you have selected. Your e-mails can be handled by another supplier, but in case that we take care of them in addition to your site, you can enable the option for emails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature gives you better protection as just our server will be approved to send out emails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any difficulties with this service, you can contact our tech support crew anytime and they will help you in a timely manner.
