SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at blocking the so-called email faking. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the person opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, thus they all will identify whether an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

If you host your domains in a shared hosting account on our end and we manage the e-mails for them, you'll be able to activate SPF protection for all of them with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is available in a separate section where you are able to view which domain names are currently secured. For the ones which aren't, you can activate the SPF protection service and set up a lot of things during this process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are permitted to send messages from your addresses, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of the servers, as well as to create a rule that emails can be sent only when your domain names use our MX records. The aforementioned choice is the most secure one, but it can be used if we take care of the e-mails for your domains and you're not using a different email supplier. The newly generated records will be activated within 1 day and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in an e-mail by using your addresses.
