Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to seem as being sent from a different, frequently with the idea to fraud the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record contains all email servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message will not be sent and it'll be removed. In the event that you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails which appear to have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible as standard with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and you can use it without any difficulty so as to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted within your account. The service is controlled through the Emails section of our cutting-edge, albeit intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the e-mail server as well as its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out messages from email addresses generated under the domain that you've picked. Your e-mails can be managed by another provider, but in case that we manage them in addition to your website, you can enable the option for e-mails to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This selection gives you better security as just our server will be permitted to send out emails from your mailboxes and you will have superior control. When you have any questions or in case you have any troubles with this service, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime and they will help you without delay.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your domain names in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are able to take advantage of the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional set of services that you will receive with this type of hosting. Enabling the protection will require just a couple of easy steps in the Hepsia Control Panel, so that even if you have never employed this type of feature before, you won't have any kind of problems. Using a really easy-to-navigate interface, you'll only have to input the details of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your email addresses - its hostname ( and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). Once the newly created record propagates, nobody will be able to fake any e-mail for that particular domain name and send messages from a server different from the one you've typed in. This does not specifically have to be our mail server, but in case we handle your emails, you will be able to enable an extra level of security by picking an option that e-mails can be send from addresses only in the event that the domain employs our MX records. Our tech support staff can assist you 24/7 in case you have any kind of questions related to this service.
