SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, therefore they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it is removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Website Hosting
You'll be able to enable the SPF protection option for your domains with just a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our Linux website hosting packages. This is done from the section with the very same name and you are able to set up the protection for each and every domain part of our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to add several servers too, if needed. If your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more risk-free option by putting a limit that emails can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. This option can't be applied when your website is hosted here, and your e-mails are with some third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection solution can tremendously enhance your online safety and stop others from forging your email addresses.
