How can you set up the SPF/DKIM records?

 One of the most common questions, asked to our technical department is the following one: “How can you set up the SPF/DKIM records?”

We do an introduction. There are endless providers to manage your own domains. Each platform has, for sure, different features and interfaces, for this reason we can’t describe to you the specific procedure, because the varied keys and the varied sections are different.

However, what we can do is to explain you where you can insert the parameters to set up the SPF/DKIM records (if you want to analyze the SPF and DKIM topics, click here).

Every administrator has a page with the list of all domains that you have bought or that you organize. In this section, you can organize DNS of each domain. When you will open the management of DNS of the domain that you want to modify, you will have the possibility to add a new record “TXT”.

  • Host: here you have to write the name of the host for the record TXT. For example, write @ if you want to connect the record directly to your name of the domain or write the name of the subdomain of your Host, as www. or ftp.

    TXT Value: write the value that you want to assign to your record. In this section you have to insert records SPF and DKIM.

TO SET UP THE SPF RECORD

Write in the section host “@” and in the section TXT write v=spf1 mx include:_spf.kmsvc.net –all (This record is an example. The technical department of Kloudymail will assign you the record that you should insert.)

TO SET UP THE DKIM RECORD

In the section host write “kloudymail._domainkey”, and in the section TXT write k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQC9P1qcTB9RFtLtDZsqv4g/heXwVlZyC… (Also this record is an example. The technical department of Kloudymail will assign you the record that you should insert.)

The SPF/DKIM records are assigned to you during the activation’s phase of your Kloudymail licence: when the technical department gives you the records to set up, you can follow the guide that you find in your services’ host, so you will insert the parameters easier.

As an example, we give you here the link of GoDaddy, the service platform of domains’ management most used worldwide.
