This post provides step-by-step instructions on how to add a DMARC record in GoDaddy.
About DMARC records
First of all, a DMARC record is a TXT record published to the DNS for your domain, under dmarc.yourdomain.com, where “yourdomain.com” is your actual domain or subdomain. It tells the email receiver what to do when an email message fails DMARC authentication, and also where to send reports on email delivery statistics.
For more information on DMARC records, refer to: Everything about a DMARC Record.
Generate your DMARC record
Before moving on, make sure you have generated your DMARC record, using our free DMARC record generator.
Publish the DMARC record in GoDaddy
Now the record is ready, follow the steps below to publish it!
1. Log in to GoDaddy
Navigate to godaddy.com, enter your credentials to log in to its dashboard.
2. Locate your domain
Under GoDaddy's "My Products", find your domain you want to add the DMARC record to, then click the DNS button, like this:
3. Create the record entry
Now you are on the DNS Management page, click the Add button in the Records section. Now you will see a form where you can enter the settings for your DMARC record, as shown below:
Make sure the record type is TXT, host is set to _dmarc, TXT value is set to the record generated above. Click the Save button. Now you have added the record!
4. Check the published DMARC record
If you want to check the published DMARC record, you can use our free DMARC record checker. Note that the change you made in the last step might take some time to propagate in the DNS, therefore, if you can't find the record, give it up to 1 hour then retry.
That's how you add a DMARC record in GoDaddy.
