Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from another, frequently with the idea to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record contains all email servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to 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 forwarded and it will be discarded. In the event that you use this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam e-mails which look as if they have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

You're able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our website hosting plans. This is performed from the section with the same name and you're able to enable the protection for any domain name on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Using a very intuitive interface, all you have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you are able to add several servers as well, if needed. In case your emails are managed on our end, you can also employ an even more secure option by setting a limit that email messages can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This option can't be used if your web site is here, and the email addresses are with some third-party service provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution can greatly increase your web protection and prevent other people from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.
