Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is intended to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one address, but to seem as being sent from a different, generally with the objective to fraud the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally get it. The record features all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it'll be discarded. In case you employ this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam that appear to have been sent from you.

Using a very intuitive interface, all you need to enter is the hostname of the mail server which will be accredited to send out messages from your emails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers as well, when needed. In case your email addresses are managed on our end, you can also take advantage of a more risk-free option by setting a restriction that emails can be sent only if your domains include our MX records. This option can't be applied if your site is hosted with us, and the e-mail addresses are with some third-party provider. In either case, the SPF protection solution can definitely improve your online safety and stop other people from spoofing your email addresses.
