How can I set up SPF & DKIM on my Arvixe 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. Login to your Arvixe WebsitePanel and click on the Domains icon.

2. Select the domain and click on the Edit DNS zone records link located under DNS panel.

3. Click  on the Add record button.

4. Depending on the available options on your screen, you will have to add a new TXT record, that will  consists of a TXT name and TXT value. 

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

    Example SPF TXT record name for your Arvixe provider:
    mydomain.com
  • Txt record 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 Arvixe provider:
    v=spf1 include:spfa.mailendo.com ~all

 

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!

2. Select the domain and click on the Edit DNS zone records link located under DNS panel.

3. Click  on the Add record button.

5. Depending on the available options on your screen, you will have to add a new TXT record, that will  consists of a TXT name and TXT value.

    ms._domainkey.mydomain.com

Arvixe's VPS servers do not use mail-channels, but it's likely that it will added in the future. If that happens the SPF record's default values will also need to be updated. It is highly recommended that you check that you've correctly completed the verification procedure through your Moosend account.
