SPF, which is an acronym for Sender Policy Framework, is an email security system, that is used to validate if an e-mail message was sent by a licensed server. Employing SPF protection for a domain will stop the forging of emails made with the domain. In simple words: enabling this feature for a domain makes a particular record in the Domain Name System (DNS) containing the IP of the servers that are allowed to send emails from mail boxes using the domain. When this record propagates globally, it exists on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic. When a new e-mail message is sent, the first DNS server it uses verifies whether it comes from an official server. If it does, it is sent to the destination address, but if it does not come from a server listed in the SPF record for the particular domain, it is discarded. Thus nobody will be able to mask an e-mail address to make it look as if you are e-mailing spam messages. This approach is also identified as email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

You can enable the SPF protection service for your domain names with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our web hosting. This carried out via the section with an identical name and you can set up the protection for each domain part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you will need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be authorized to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you're able to add several servers as well, if needed. If your e-mail addresses are taken care of on our end, you may also use a more secure option by placing a restriction that messages can be sent only if your domain names have our MX records. This solution cannot be used when your website is here, while the e-mail addresses are with a third-party provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution can vastly improve your online security and prevent others from spoofing your email addresses.
