SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual getting it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic around the world, so that they all can identify whether an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it is removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Hosting

When you host your domain names in a hosting account on our end and we manage the e-mail addresses for them, you are able to enable SPF protection for them with several clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is available in a section of its own where you are able to see which domain names are already protected. For the ones that are not, you will be able to activate the SPF protection solution and set up a variety of things at the same time - the hostnames of the mail servers that are allowed to send messages from your e-mails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of the servers, and even to set a rule that messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. The aforementioned choice is the most secure one, and you can use it in the event that we handle the email addresses for your domains and you're not using some other e-mail service provider. The newly created records will be activated within one day and nobody will be able to forge the FROM field in a message using your e-mail addresses.
