Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from another one, usually with the objective to fraud the recipient someway. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world have it. The record features all mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. When you employ this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages that look as if they have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible by default with each cloud hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it with ease so as to secure the emails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the e-mail server and its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails created under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mails may be handled by some other company, but in case that we manage them in addition to your website, you can also enable the option for your emails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This selection provides you with even better protection as just our server will be certified to send e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have better control. If you have any questions or in case you have any kind of problems with this service, you can contact our tech support crew at any time and they'll assist you immediately.
