Why do we add an SPF record in cPanel?
Before getting detailed into the topic, let’s first discuss the benefits of adding SPF records.
The act of interrupting a communication from an unknown source that pretends as a trusted source is Spoofing.
Spoofing gains access to the target’s personal information and spreads malware through infected links and attachments. One major measure to address spoofing is to use SPF records.
A Sender Policy Framework or SPF record indicates which mail server has the authorization to send mail for a domain.
Adding an SPF record in the DNS zone file is the best way to stop spammers from spoofing the domain.
