Change an SPF Record

A Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record is a type of TXT record that lets you explicitly define the outgoing mail servers that can send email from your domain name. You can use them to prevent spam. When incoming mail servers receive email messages from your domain name, they compare the SPF record to the outgoing mail server information. If the information doesn't match, they identify the email message as unauthorized.

  1. Follow the directions to Add an SPF record.
  2. However, in the TXT (Text) section, click the pencil icon to edit.
  3. Edit any of the following fields:
    • Host — Enter the host name for the TXT record. For example, type @ to map the record directly to your domain name, or enter the subdomain of your host name, such as www or ftp.
    • TXT Value — Enter the value you want to assign to the record.
    • TTL — Select how long the server should cache the information.
  4. Click Save Zone File.
