SPF

DNS Record Generator

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.

  2. Navigate to the Domains page
  3. You should see a list of all your domains; click on the domain
  4. Click on DNS or Edit DNS
  5. Then click on Host Records or Edit Host Records
  6. Now you will have the option to create a new record
  7. For the record Type select TXT
  8. For the Host/Name field enter the @ character or your domain (example.com), both are acceptable
  9. For the Content/Value field copy and paste the SPF record we generated for you
  10. For the TTL field leave it as-is to use the default value
  11. Click Save to complete your updates (allow up to 48 hours for your DNS changes to take full effect globally)
