Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from a different one, typically with the purpose to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all of the mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and if the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. Whenever you employ this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Cloud Hosting

The SPF protection feature is accessible as standard with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it with ease so as to secure the e-mails for any domain name hosted in your account. The service is handled through the Emails section of the innovative, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to activate the protection is to type the IP of the e-mail server as well as its hostname -, for example. When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send out email messages from emails made under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be managed by a different company, but if we handle them in addition to your web site, you can also enable the option for messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records.
