SPF and DKIM Setup for GoDaddy

Step 1

Create a Sender Domain as per the instructions here.

Step 2

Log in to GoDaddy. Next to your respective domain, click the DNS button.


Step 3

To create a new SPF record, click the ADD button.
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 4

Select the TXT option from the Type drop-down menu.

Enter @ into the Host field.

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.

If you are interested, take a look at some more detailed information about SPF records here.


Click on the Save button.


Step 5

To create a DKIM record, click the ADD button. 

Select the CNAME option from the Type drop-down menu.

Enter the Hostname we recommend into the Host field. 

Enter the Value that we advise for your CNAME record into the Points to field, then click the Save button.


You can find the "Hostname" and "Value" in the "Sender Domains" section of your SMTP2GO dashboard.
