SPF, which means Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail safety system, which is designed to verify whether an email message is sent by an official server. Using SPF protection for a given domain will prevent the counterfeiting of emails generated with the domain. In simple words: enabling this feature for a domain name creates a particular record in the Domain Name System (DNS) which contains the IP of the servers which are permitted to send e-mails from mail boxes using the domain. Once this record propagates globally, it exists on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic. Any time an email message is sent, the initial DNS server it uses checks whether it originates from an approved server. In the event it does, it is sent to the destination address, yet if it doesn't originate from a server part of the SPF record for the particular domain, it's rejected. Thus nobody will be able to mask an email address and make it appear as if you're sending spam. This approach is also termed email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided by default with each cloud website hosting plan that we supply and you're able to use it with ease so that you can protect the emails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of the innovative, and easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to activate the protection is to type the IP address of the email server plus its hostname - mail.server.com, for example. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send out email messages from emails made under the domain that you've selected. Your e-mail addresses may be managed by some other provider, but in case that we manage them in addition to your web site, you can activate an option for your e-mails to be sent only when the domain features our MX records. This feature will provide you with better protection as exclusively our server will be certified to send out emails from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. When you have any kind of questions or if you have any problems with this service, you will be able to contact our tech support crew at any time and they'll give you a hand in a timely manner.
