How can I set up SPF & DKIM on my GoDaddy provider?

Correctly setting up SPF and DKIM is very important as it will increase the deliverability of your campaigns. If your aim is to have professional results from your email marketing efforts, then it's almost mandatory to look into what is a fairly simple procedure, which will greatly impact the success of your campaigns and allow you to hit inboxes!

First, you need to make sure you know where to find the required SPF & DKIM information inside your Moosend account. Then all you have to do is follow the steps described below:


A. Setting up SPF

1. Log in your account at www.godaddy.com by clicking on the My Account tab.

2. Click on the Add New Record. The Add DNS Record window is displayed.

3. Fill in the following fields:

  • Host
    After locating the SPF TXT records of your sender on your Moosend account, enter the provided TXT record name. You can type @ to map the record directly to your domain name.

    Example SPF TXT record name for your GoDaddy provider:
    @

 

  • TXT value
    After locating the SPF TXT records of your sender on your Moosend account, enter the provided TXT record value.

    Example SPF TXT record value for your GoDaddy provider:
    v=spf1 include:spfa.mailendo.com ~all

 

  • TTL
    Select for how long the server should cache the information.

4. Click OK.

Keep in mind that if you already have an SPF record, all you need to do is to edit the SPF which is already available. Make sure you avoid creating two SPF records as this will make your SPF invalid!



B. Setting up DKIM/ Domain key

1. Log in your account at www.godaddy.com by clicking on the My Account tab.

2. Click on the Add New Record. The Add DNS Record window is displayed.

3. Fill in the following fields:

  • Host
    Enter the subdomain of your host name, such as www or ftp.

    After locating the DKIM record of your sender on your Moosend account, use only the value ms._domainkey as a TXT Name for your GoDaddy provider (don't use the part that contains your domain name, as Godaddy adds the domain in automatically!).

    Example DKIM TXT record name for your GoDaddy provider:
    ms._domainkey

 

  • Points to
    After locating the DKIM record of your sender on your Moosend account, enter the provided TXT record value.

  • TTL
    Select for how long the server should cache the information.

4. Click OK.

 

Usually, 30 minutes are required in order for newly created records to take effect. Also, it is highly recommended that you check that you've correctly completed the verification procedure through your Moosend account.
