Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is used to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to look as being sent from another, generally with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally get it. The record contains all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be removed. When you employ this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam e-mails that appear to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can activate the SPF protection service for your domain names with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our Linux cloud web hosting services. This is performed via the section bearing the same name and you're able to allow the protection for each domain hosted on our revolutionary cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you are able to include several servers as well, when needed. In case your email addresses are handled on our end, you may also employ a more secure option by placing a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. This alternative can't be applied if your site is here, while your emails are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option can greatly improve your online security and prevent other people from counterfeiting your email addresses.
