Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from a different, generally with the objective to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally get it. The record includes all email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it will be discarded. When you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam emails which look as if they have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available by default with every single web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it without any difficulty to secure the e-mail addresses for each domain hosted in your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of our revolutionary, yet easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP of the mail server plus its hostname -, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send messages from emails made under the domain that you've picked. Your email addresses can be taken care of by a different provider, but if we manage them in addition to your web site, you can enable the option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This option gives you improved security as exclusively our server will be approved to send out messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you experience any kind of problems with this service, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they will help you immediately.
