SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is done at the first server where the e-mail 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 supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from using your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

When you host your domain names in a website hosting account on our end and we manage the email addresses for them, you'll be able to enable SPF protection for them with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is available in its own section where you'll be able to view which domain names are already protected. For those which aren't, you will be able to enable the SPF protection option and manage a lot of things in the process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are permitted to send messages from your emails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of these servers, and even to set a rule that email messages can be sent only if your domains have our MX records. The last option is the most secure one, and it can be used if we take care of the email addresses for your domains and you're not using some other email provider. The newly generated records will propagate within 24 hours and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in an e-mail with your e-mail addresses.
