Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is intended to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from another one, usually with the purpose to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a special record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally have it. The record contains all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message won't be forwarded and it will be removed. When you employ this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails that look as if they have been sent from you.

This is performed via the section bearing the very same name and you'll be able to enable the protection for any domain hosted on our exceptional cloud platform. Using a really user-friendly interface, all you have to submit is the hostname of the mail server which will be approved to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to include several servers as well, when needed. When your email addresses are handled on our end, you may also employ a more secure option by putting a restriction that email messages can be sent only when your domains have our MX records. This solution can't be applied in case your site is hosted with us, and the emails are with some third-party provider.
