Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail, but to look as being sent from another one, ordinarily with the idea to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record features all email servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the given domain, the message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. If you employ this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam which appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection option is available as standard with each shared hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it with ease so that you can secure the emails for any domain name hosted in your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the innovative, yet intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the email server in addition to its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from e-mails generated under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mails can be taken care of by some other provider, but when we handle them in addition to your website, you can activate an option for emails to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This selection gives you greater security as just our server will be permitted to send out emails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. When you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of troubles with this particular service, you can contact our tech support team at any time and they will give you a hand in a timely manner.
