Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to look as being sent from a different one, frequently with the idea to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be removed. In case you use this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails which look as if they have been sent by you.

SPF Protection in Shared Website Hosting

The SPF protection feature is provided by default with each and every shared website hosting plan that we supply and you'll be able to use it with ease so that you can secure the e-mails for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is handled from the Emails section of the hi-tech, and easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the mail server as well as its hostname -, for example. Once the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send e-mail messages from emails made under the domain that you have selected. Your email addresses may be managed by a different company, but when we manage them along with your website, you may also activate the option for messages to be sent only if the domain has our MX records. This option gives you improved security as only our server will be permitted to send out messages from your mailboxes and you'll have improved control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any kind of difficulties with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew at any time and they'll assist you without delay.
