Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one address, but to seem as being sent from another, ordinarily with the objective to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world have it. The record includes all e-mail servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case the sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the given domain, the message will not be sent and it'll be removed. When you use this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam emails which appear to have been sent by you.

The SPF protection function is provided as standard with every single web hosting package that we supply and you will be able to use it with ease so that you can protect the e-mails for any domain name hosted in your account.

When the protection is active, only this server will be able to send messages from emails created under the domain name that you've picked. Your email addresses may be handled by some other company, but in case that we take care of them together with your web site, you may also activate the option for your e-mail messages to be sent only when the domain features our MX records.
