SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the web traffic all over the world, so that they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you host your domain names in a cloud hosting account on our end and we handle the e-mail addresses for them, you will be able to enable SPF protection for any of them with several clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This service can be found in a section of its own where you'll be able to view which domain names are already secured. For the ones that are not, you can enable the SPF protection option and configure various things in the process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are allowed to send messages from your e-mails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of these servers, and even to set a rule that messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. The last mentioned choice is the most secure one, but you can use it in the event that we handle the emails for your domains and you are not using some other e-mail supplier. The newly generated records will propagate within 24 hours and nobody will be able to forge the FROM field in a message using your email addresses.
