SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email faking. Basically, this means sending some message from one e-mail address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is placed on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, so they all can recognize if an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.

The SPF protection feature is available as standard with each and every website hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to use it with ease so that you can secure the emails for any domain name hosted within your account. The service is handled from the Emails section of the innovative, yet easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel.
