SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the person opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, so they all can recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.

This is done through the section with the very same name and you are able to enable the protection for any domain hosted on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Using a really handy interface, all you'll need to type in is the hostname of the mail server that will be permitted to send out messages from your e-mail addresses and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, it is possible to include several servers as well, when needed. When your e-mail addresses are handled on our end, you can also take advantage of an even more secure option by putting a limit that e-mail messages can be sent only if your domain names feature our MX records.
