How can I enter a SPF record?

What is SPF?

SPF Records (Sender Permitted From or Sender Policy Framework) are entries that specify which mail servers are allowed to send e-mails from your domain. Thus, SPF prevents the circulation of e-mails that have your sender address but are not send by you.

Providers that support these entries are able to detect this common type of spam e-mails and treat them accordingly.

A typical SPF record for the domain example.com would be the following:

"v=spf1 a:mail.example.com -all“.

Configure SPF record

  1. In order to configure a SPF record, go to Domains - My domains and click on the domain to be configured.
  2. Scroll down to the DNS zone settings.
  3. Click on the Edit button at the right and in the TXT section enter your SPF record as a TXT record.
  4. When finished, click Save.
