A Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record specifies which servers and domains are authorized to send email on behalf of your organization.
Setup SPF Record
Follow our step-by-step instructions to setup your new SPF record.
Now that you've successfully generated your SPF record, complete the setup by creating a TXT record for your domain. The process will be similar for most domain registrars and hosting providers with some small differences.
Log into your Account
Navigate to the Domains page
You should see a list of all your domains; click on the domain
Click on DNS or Edit DNS
Then click on Host Records or Edit Host Records
Now you will have the option to create a new record
For the record Type select TXT
For the Host/Name field enter the @ character or your domain (example.com), both are acceptable
For the Content/Value field copy and paste the SPF record we generated for you
For the TTL field leave it as-is to use the default value
Click Save to complete your updates (allow up to 48 hours for your DNS changes to take full effect globally)
If these instructions are not helpful enough, select instructions for some of the most popular domain registrars and hosting providers.
Don't see your registrar or provider in the dropdown? Send us a message so we can add it to the list.
Click Domains on the menu bar at the top of the page
Click the Domain Name that you wish to manage. If you only have one domain, you will automatically be redirected to its management page
Scroll down to the DNS Settings section and click the Hamburger Menu on the right, then select Add Record (or to update an existing record: hover your cursor over the TXT Record and click the Modify option that appears on its right)
Select TXT Record from the drop-down menu, then click the Add button
Enter the Sub Domain if necessary, followed by the Text Record in the corresponding fields
On the Plan Details page, next to the domain you want to verify, click Manage
On the Website Details page, next to your domain, click Site Tools
In the left column, click Domain and then DNS Zone Editor
Under Create New Record, click the TXT tab
Leave the Name field empty
In the TTL field, leave the default value of 1 hour
In the Value field, paste the SPF record we generated for you
⚠️ Some domain registrars and hosting providers require you to enclose the SPF record string in quotations.
⚠️ If your record string exceeds 255 characters, you will need to split it into multiple records.
⚠️ You can only have one SPF record per domain or subdomain.
