Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail, but to look as being sent from another one, ordinarily with the objective to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally receive it. The record contains all the email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be sent and it will be discarded. In case you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages that look as if they have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

You are able to enable the SPF protection service for your domains with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our Linux cloud packages. This carried out through the section bearing the same name and you can enable the protection for each and every domain name hosted on our exceptional cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you'll have to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, you'll be able to include several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mails are managed on our end, you may also employ an even more secure option by putting a restriction that email messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This option can't be applied when your web site is hosted with us, and the e-mails are with a third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can strongly improve your web safety and prevent other people from spoofing your email addresses.
