Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail, but to appear as being sent from a different one, typically with the purpose to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all the mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it will be removed. Whenever you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided by default with each shared hosting package that we supply and you're able to use it with ease to secure the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of the innovative, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the email server as well as its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send messages from e-mails made under the domain name that you've picked. Your emails can be taken care of by a different company, but when we take care of them along with your web site, you can activate the option for your email messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This feature will provide you with improved security as just our server will be permitted to send out messages from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any sort of difficulties with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support crew anytime and they will give you a hand right away.
