Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail, but to seem as being sent from another one, generally with the purpose to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all email servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be submitted and it will be removed. In case you use this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible by default with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it with ease to protect the email addresses for any domain hosted in your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of our cutting-edge, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server plus its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from email addresses created under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mail addresses can be handled by a different company, but when we manage them along with your web site, you may also activate the option for email messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This option will provide you with improved protection as just our server will be approved to send out messages from your mailboxes and you'll have superior control. When you have any kind of questions or if you have any sort of difficulties with this service, you can contact our tech support team at any time and they'll help you in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional collection of services that you'll get using this kind of website hosting. Activating the protection requires only several easy steps within the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even if you've never used such a feature before, you will not have any problems. Using a really easy to work with interface, you will simply need to type in the details of the mail server that will be certified to send out messages from your email addresses - its hostname ( and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the newly made record propagates, no one will be able to counterfeit any email address for that particular domain and send emails from a server different from the one you've typed in. This does not specifically have to be our mail server, yet when we handle your email messages, you're able to enable one more level of security by choosing an option that e-mail messages can be send from addresses only if the domain uses our MX records.
