Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from a different, frequently with the objective to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record features all of the email servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the given domain, the message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. When you employ this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails which appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

The SPF protection option is available by default with each and every cloud web hosting package that we supply and you will be able to use it without any difficulty in order to protect the e-mails for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of our outstanding, and easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the e-mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. Once the protection is active, only this server will be able to send messages from email addresses made under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails may be taken care of by some other supplier, but if we take care of them along with your site, you can enable an option for your email messages to be sent only if the domain features our MX records. This solution provides you with superior security as just our server will be approved to send e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have better control.
