SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the person opening it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, thus they all will recognize if an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
SPF Protection in Hosting
The SPF protection option is provided as standard with each hosting package that we supply and you're able to use it without difficulty to protect the e-mail addresses for any domain hosted as part of your account. The service is handled from the Emails section of our hi-tech, and intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type in the IP address of the e-mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out emails from emails created under the domain name that you have picked. Your e-mail addresses can be managed by some other company, but when we handle them together with your web site, you may also activate an option for e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records.
