Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another, frequently with the purpose to fraud the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally get it. The record features all email servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it'll be removed. If you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails which seem to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to enable the SPF protection option for your domain names with a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux cloud web hosting packages. This is performed from the section with the same name and you'll be able to allow the protection for each and every domain name part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you need to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you're able to include several servers as well, when needed. When your e-mail addresses are taken care of on our end, you can also use a more secure option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This alternative can't be applied in case your site is here, but your emails are with a third-party supplier. Either way, the SPF protection option will greatly improve your online security and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
