SPF, which means Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail security system, that is is intended to confirm if an email message is sent by a licensed server. Using SPF protection for a given domain name will prevent the forging of emails created with the domain. In layman's terms: enabling this function for a domain name makes a specific record in the Domain Name System (DNS) that contains the IP of the servers which are permitted to send email messages from mail boxes using the domain. When this record propagates worldwide, it exists on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic. When an email message is sent, the initial DNS server it uses checks whether it originates from an official server. If it does, it's sent to the destination address, yet if it doesn't come from a server listed in the SPF record for the domain, it's discarded. In this way nobody will be able to mask an e-mail address and make it appear as if you're sending spam messages. This approach is also referred to as email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

The SPF protection option is provided by default with each shared website hosting plan that we supply and you are able to use it with ease so as to protect the emails for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is operated through the Emails section of our revolutionary, yet easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type the IP address of the mail server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. When the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out e-mail messages from email addresses made under the domain that you have selected. Your e-mail addresses can be handled by a different provider, but if we take care of them in addition to your website, you may also enable the option for emails to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This solution provides you with greater protection as solely our server will be permitted to send emails from your mailboxes and you will have improved control. If you have any questions or in case you experience any sort of problems with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support crew at any time and they'll give you a hand immediately.
