Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is used to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail address, but to seem as being sent from a different, often with the objective to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a special record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record contains all the mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be removed. Whenever you use this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and you can use it with ease so as to secure the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of our outstanding, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the e-mail server as well as its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out messages from emails generated under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be managed by a different provider, but if we manage them along with your website, you may also enable the option for your email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This option will provide you with superior security as just our server will be approved to send e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any kind of questions or if you experience any sort of troubles with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support team at any time and they'll help you in a timely manner.
