Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is used to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from a different, usually with the idea to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record includes all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an email address within the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the message won't be sent and it'll be removed. When you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails which look as if they have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

The SPF protection function is available by default with each web hosting package that we offer and you can use it without difficulty so as to secure the e-mails for each domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of our hi-tech, and easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. What is needed to enable the protection is to type the IP of the email server as well as its hostname -, for instance. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails generated under the domain name that you've selected. Your emails may be managed by another supplier, but when we take care of them along with your website, you can also activate an option for emails to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This feature will provide you with greater protection as solely our server will be permitted to send out e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control.
