SPF, which means Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail safety system, which is designed to verify whether an e-mail message was sent by an official server. Using SPF protection for a domain name will stop the faking of email addresses created with the domain. In simple words: enabling this attribute for a domain creates a specific record in the Domain Name System (DNS) containing the IP of the servers which are permitted to send emails from mail boxes using the domain. Once this record propagates globally, it will exist on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic. Whenever a new email message is sent, the initial DNS server it uses tests if it comes from an accredited server. When it does, it's sent to the destination address, but if it does not originate from a server part of the SPF record for the particular domain, it's rejected. In this way nobody can mask an email address to make it appear as if you are sending spam messages. This technique is also known as email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with every single cloud hosting package that we supply and you're able to use it without difficulty to protect the emails for each domain hosted within your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of the revolutionary, albeit easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server and its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send email messages from emails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your email addresses may be managed by a different company, but if we manage them together with your website, you may also enable the option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This option gives you greater security as solely our server will be permitted to send out e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you experience any sort of issues with this particular service, you can contact our tech support crew at any time and they will give you a hand immediately.
