What are Sender Policy Framework (SPF) Records and how do I edit/add them?

Note: SPF Records should also be created as a TXT record, as many servers only look at TXT records for SPF instructions. Any changes that you make to your Advanced DNS settings can interrupt your service. If you are not an advanced user, we strongly recommend that you not change these settings without consulting our support department.


To create SPF records please follow these steps:

Step 1.

Login to your  account and select Domain Manager.

Step 2.
Click directly on your domain name to access the domain editing page.

Step 3.
On the domain editing page, select the DNS tab.

Scroll down to Manage Advanced DNS Records and click on New Advanced DNS Manager

Tables can't be imported directly. Please insert an image of your table which can be found here.

Important:

Step 4.
To add an SPF record, click the button to Add New Record.

Set the Record Type as SPF. Fill in the Alias and Record fields as instructed by your hosting service provider. You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.

If you are hosted with Basehost and looking to prevent email spoofing, a TXT record can be applied to your domain so that only Basehost's mail servers are authorized to send mail on behalf of your domain. This is done using the same steps as above, setting the Text Record Type as TXT

Tables can't be imported directly. Please insert an image of your table which can be found here.

Note:

Host : your domain name
Record "v=spf1 mx ip4:54.236.124.210 ip4:54.208.1.230 -all"


To edit an existing SPF record, click the Edit button update the Host and/or Points To field, as instructed by your hosting service provider.

You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.

 

Note: If your domain was already set to Park with Basehost, Forward Domain, or Host with Basehost, these records should take about 1 hour to propagate. If your domain was previously set to Use Third Party Hosting, updates can take up to 24-48 hours to propagate worldwide, though we find it's typically much closer to 6-12 hours.
