SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is stored on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, so that they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.

This is done through the section with the very same name and you can set up the protection for each and every domain on our outstanding cloud hosting platform. Using a very time and effort saving interface, all you need to enter is the hostname of the mail server that will be approved to send out messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Last, but not least, it is possible to add several servers too, when needed. If your e-mails are handled on our end, you can also employ an even more risk-free option by putting a limit that messages can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option can't be used in case your web site is hosted with us, but the e-mail addresses are with some third-party service provider. Either way, the SPF protection option will really increase your online protection and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
