SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this means sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
SPF Protection in Web Hosting
When you host your domains in a web hosting account on our end and we handle the email addresses for them, you will be able to activate SPF protection for all of them with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is available in a separate section where you're able to view which domain names are currently secured. For those which aren't, you will be able to enable the SPF protection option and set up numerous things during this process - the hostnames of the mail servers that are allowed to send messages from your addresses, the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of the servers, and even to create a rule that emails can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records. The aforementioned choice is the most secure one, and you can use it if we handle the emails for your domains and you are not using some other email provider. The newly generated records will propagate within 1 day and nobody will be able to fake the FROM field in a message by using your email addresses.
