Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different one, usually with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record features all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an email address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be submitted and it will be removed. When you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages that seem to have been sent from you.
SPF Protection in Shared Hosting
You're able to activate the SPF protection option for your domains with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all of our shared hosting. This carried out via the section with an identical name and you're able to allow the protection for each domain name part of our cutting-edge cloud platform. Using a really simple interface, all you will have to type in is the hostname of the mail server which will be permitted to send messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers too, when needed. If your e-mail addresses are managed by us, you may also take advantage of an even more secure option by putting a restriction that email messages can be sent only if your domains feature our MX records. This option cannot be used if your website is here, and your e-mails are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection solution will definitely increase your web protection and stop others from counterfeiting your e-mail addresses.

All that you'll have to do is to find a domain from a drop-down menu then type the mail server hostname and IPv4 or IPv6 address. Once the updated record propagates, messages from your email addresses will be sent globally only if they were sent from that specific server. When your emails are managed by us and not by some third-party supplier, you'll also be able to use an option for emails to be mailed only if the domain includes our MX records and this would be the safest option.
