Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to look as being sent from another one, frequently with the purpose to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all of the email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted destination. When, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be submitted and it will be removed. In case you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam messages that look as if they have been sent from you.

SPF Protection in Web Hosting

The SPF protection option is accessible as standard with each web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to use it without difficulty so that you can secure the emails for each domain hosted in your account. The service is controlled from the Emails section of our hi-tech, and intuitive Hepsia Control Panel. All it takes to enable the protection is to type in the IP address of the email server and its hostname -, for example. The moment the protection is active, only this server will be able to send emails from email addresses generated under the domain name that you've picked. Your e-mail addresses can be handled by another provider, but when we handle them along with your website, you may also activate an option for your email messages to be sent only if the domain uses our MX records. This selection will provide you with greater protection as exclusively our server will be authorized to send email messages from your mailboxes and you will have better control. If you have any kind of questions or if you have any difficulties with this particular service, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime and they'll give you a hand in a timely manner.

SPF Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to use the SPF protection feature as a part of the conventional set of services that you will have using this type of website hosting. Enabling the protection will involve only several simple steps in the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore even in case you've never used such a feature before, you will not have any kind of issues. Using a really intuitive interface, you'll simply have to type in the details of the mail server which will be certified to send messages from your addresses - its hostname ( and IP address (IPv4 or IPv6). The moment the recently generated record propagates, no one will be able to fake any e-mail for that particular domain name and send out emails from a server other than the one you've typed in. This does not necessarily have to be our mail server, yet if we handle your email messages, you can activate one more level of protection by choosing an option that email messages can be send out from addresses only in the event that the domain employs our MX records. Our technical support team will be able to assist you 24/7 in case you have any kind of questions about this service.
