SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the person getting it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, therefore they all will identify if an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your domain names in a shared web hosting account on our end and we manage the emails for them, you will be able to enable SPF protection for them with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is available in a section of its own where you're able to see which domain names are currently protected. For the ones that aren't, you can activate the SPF protection option and manage a variety of things during the process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are permitted to send messages from your emails, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of these servers, and even to create a rule that emails can be sent only when your domain names include our MX records. The last mentioned option is the most secure one, and it can be used when we manage the e-mails for your domains and you are not using another email supplier. The new records will be activated within 24 hours and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in an email with your email addresses.
