SPF and DKIM Setup for FastHosts

The following guide is relevant for SMTP2GO customers, who have a domain name hosted with FastHosts.

Step 1

Log in to your FastHosts account. Click the My Packages button and click the desired domain. Click the Advanced DNS button.

Step 2

To create a new SPF record, click the Add TXT Record button under the TXT Records section.
Note: if you already see a TXT record with a value beginning with 'v=spf1' then edit that record rather than adding a new one.

Step 3

Leave the Host Name field blank.

Enter the SPF record that we recommend for you into the Value field. You can find your recommended SPF record from the Sender Domains page in your SMTP2GO App.

Click the Save button.


Step 4

To create a DKIM record, click the Add CNAME Record button under the CNAME Records section.


Step 5

Enter the Hostname we recommend into the Host Name field.

Enter the Value that we advise for your DKIM record into the Points To field.


Click the Save button.
