SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic around the world, thus they all can identify whether an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
You can enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included in our Linux shared hosting. This is done via the section with the same name and you'll be able to allow the protection for each domain name hosted on our outstanding cloud platform. Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to include several servers too, when needed. In case your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you may also use a more secure option by putting a limit that email messages can be sent only when your domain names have our MX records. This solution can't be applied if your website is hosted here, but the email addresses are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option can tremendously improve your web safety and stop others from spoofing your e-mail addresses.
