Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another, ordinarily with the idea to fraud the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally get it. The record includes all e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an email address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message will not be submitted and it'll be removed. Whenever you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails which seem to have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Shared Hosting

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with each shared hosting plan that we supply and you can use it without difficulty so as to protect the email addresses for each domain name hosted in your account. The service is operated from the Emails section of the state-of-the-art, yet easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. All you need to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the email server in addition to its hostname -, for example. As soon as the protection is active, only this server will be able to send email messages from e-mails generated under the domain that you have picked. Your emails can be managed by a different supplier, but if we handle them in addition to your web site, you may also activate an option for your messages to be sent only when the domain uses our MX records. This option provides you with superior protection as exclusively our server will be approved to send e-mail messages from your mailboxes and you'll have better control. When you have any kind of questions or in case you have any sort of issues with this particular service, you can contact our tech support team at any time and they'll help you without delay.
