An SPF Record (simply an entry into the DNS records) is used by mail servers to know if mail coming from an address at your domain is really allowed to be sent from the sending mail server.

If you will be using our servers send email related to your domain, you would generally use an SPF record like the following:

Code:
"v=spf1 a mx include:spf.hostek.com -all"
For our Resellers that don't want to use hostek.com, use an SPF Record like:

Code:
"v=spf1 a mx include:spf.ezhostingserver.com -all"
Steps to add an SPF Record to your domain:
Assuming that your DNS is managed with us, login to your hosting control panel, and go to the DNS Editor (DNS Manager) section and click on Add Record. Then leave the Name field blank. For the Type, choose TXT and for the Data enter the SPF Record detail as you need, using the sample provided above.

Basic information related to some SPF Record options:

The "-all" may be adjusted on a per customer basis to any of the
following depending on their needs:


-all = mail not sent from an address listed in the SPF record should
be completely rejected (Hard Fail). Mail that IS sent from an
address in the SPF record may be given a lower spam score by some
servers.


~all = mail not sent from an address listed in the SPF record should
be given a higher spam score(Soft Fail). Mail that IS sent from an
address in the SPF record may be given a lower spam score by some
servers.


?all = mail not sent from an address listed in the SPF record should
be treated normally as if the domain did not have an spf record
(Neutral). Mail that IS sent from an address in the SPF record may
be given a lower spam score by some servers.
