DNS Setup for GoDaddy

The following guide is relevant for SMTP2GO customers, who have a domain name hosted with 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 record, click the ADD button under the Records section.

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

Enter the Hostname we recommend into the Host field.
Note: You may only need to add the first part of the recommended hostname and not your full domain name to your DNS records as your provider may automatically add it.

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

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each required CNAME record.


You can find the "Host" and "Points to" under the Settings > Verified Senders section of your SMTP2GO Dashboard.
