SPF, which stands for Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail protection system, which is employed to verify whether an e-mail message is sent by an authorized server. Using SPF protection for a domain name will stop the forging of emails generated with the domain. In simple words: activating this function for a domain name generates a special record in the Domain Name System (DNS) containing the IP of the servers that are permitted to send e-mail messages from mail boxes under the domain. When this record propagates worldwide, it exists on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic. Any time an email message is sent, the first DNS server it goes through checks if it comes from an accredited server. If it does, it is sent to the destination address, however if it does not originate from a server part of the SPF record for the domain, it is discarded. In this way nobody will mask an email address then make it look as if you are distributing spam. This method is also known as email spoofing.

SPF Protection in Website Hosting

The SPF protection function is accessible by default with each website hosting package that we supply and you will be able to use it without any difficulty to secure the emails for any domain name hosted as part of your account. The service is managed from the Emails section of the cutting-edge, albeit easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP of the mail server in addition to its hostname - mail.server.com, for instance. The moment the protection is activated, only this server will be able to send messages from e-mails made under the domain name that you have selected. Your email addresses can be handled by another provider, but if we handle them along with your site, you may also activate the option for messages to be sent only when the domain has our MX records. This solution gives you superior security as just our server will be authorized to send out email messages from your mailboxes and you will have improved control.
