SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic around the world, so that they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.

SPF Protection in Shared Web Hosting
