How can I create an SPF record in Plesk?
Posted by Sean Syed on 13 February 2013 07:25 PM

Overview

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is a method of fighting spam. As more time passes, this protocol will be used as one of the standard methods of fighting spam on the Internet. An SPF record is a TXT record that is part of a domain's DNS zone file. The TXT record specifies a list of authorized host names/IP addresses that mail can originate from for a given domain name. Once this entry is placed within the DNS zone, no further configuration is necessary to take advantage of servers that incorporate SPF checking into their anti-spam systems. This SPF record is added the same way as a regular A, MX, or CNAME record.

Requirements

Your domain must be using DNN4Less name servers:

  • NS1.DNN4Less.com
  • NS2.DNN4Less.com

Instructions

  1. Log into Control Panel.
  2. Select your domain name
  3. Edit DNS Settings
  4. Click + Add a record to create a new record. Set the type to TXT and enter your SPF record in the right column.
  5. Click OK to Save the changes.
