How do I add TXT or SPF records on my domains?
You can refer to the article "Change Host Records - Forward, Redirect or Point Your Domain/Sub-Domain" for general information and management of Host Records.
You can add an SPF record as a TXT record in our system.
To add a TXT or SPF record to a domain:
- Login to your account.
- Select the menu option Domain > My Domains (or from the main account overview page, go to "Registered Domains").
- Click on a domain name.
- Click on "Host Records - Edit". If the Host Records option is not available to you, it could mean that your domain name is not using our DNS servers. To change this, please see the article, "How to change domain nameservers (DNS)".
- Under the appropriate host name (usually the "@" or "none" host name is used) (or you can create a custom host name), click on the "Type" drop-down menu and click on "TXT". You can input the text in the "Address" field.
- Click Save.
- The majority of the time, you'll want to enter an SPF record for the @ Host Name. This will create an SPF record for the main domain (e.g., example.com).
- The SPF Text String should be entered in the following format (for example):
v=spf1 ip4:126.96.36.199 ip4:188.8.131.52 ip4:184.108.40.206/23 ip4:220.127.116.11/24 ip4:18.104.22.168/24 ip4:22.214.171.124/24 ip4:126.96.36.199/24 ip4:188.8.131.52/24 ip4:184.108.40.206/24 mx -all
(The above is eNom.com's SPF record, which specifies which IP addresses are allowed to send mail for eNom.com.)
- You can create the SPF record using an SPF wizard, such as spfwizard.net.
