Can I have an SPF record for my domain?

Yes, you can and it may be required by some receiving email servers. 

For shared hosting, if your domain is hosted on the main server shared IP i.e. you do not have a unique IP for your account, your SPF record will be

"v=spf1 a ~all"

or you can have it as "v=spf1 a:servername.nocdirect.com ~all" 

And if your domain is hosted on a unique IP, your SPF record will be

"v=spf1 a:servername.nocdirect.com ~all" 

where servername.nocdirect.com is your hosting server. You can find the name of your server from your control panel under Account Information -> Machine.

For VPS / dedicated servers, you can use the same method by using IPs, say your server/VPS main IP is 1.2.3.4, your SPF record will be

"v=spf1 ip4:1.2.3.4 ~all" 

Or if you point a hostname to your server/vps main IP, you can use that as well and then your spf record will be

"v=spf1 a:your.server.hostname ~all" 

If you send emails from any other server other than your hosting server, you will need to visit http://openspf.org and create the SPF record accordingly.

Please open a support ticket and provide the SPF record for our techs to add it in your domain zone file.
