Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is employed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail, but to look as being sent from another, typically with the objective to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a unique record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world get it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it will be removed. If you use this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

The SPF protection option is available by default with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it without difficulty in order to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is managed through the Emails section of the outstanding, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP of the mail server as well as its hostname -, for instance. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out messages from email addresses made under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mails can be managed by a different company, but if we handle them along with your website, you can enable the option for email messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This selection gives you improved protection as solely our server will be permitted to send e-mails from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or if you have any sort of troubles with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they'll assist you without delay.
