Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail, but to seem as being sent from another one, typically with the idea to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record contains all the email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. If you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages which look as if they have been sent from you.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with each shared hosting package that we offer and you're able to use it without difficulty so as to secure the e-mail addresses for any domain hosted within your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of the hi-tech, and easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from emails made under the domain name that you've selected. Your e-mail addresses may be handled by a different supplier, but if we handle them along with your site, you can also enable the option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature gives you better protection as exclusively our server will be authorized to send emails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you have any troubles with this particular service, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they'll help you right away.
