DNS Setup for DirectAdmin

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

Step 1

Log in to your DirectAdmin account. Click on your desired domain name and click DNS Management.

Step 2

To create a new record, go to the Add Domain Records section.

Enter the Hostname we recommend into the first field of the CNAME line.
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 field next to CNAME.


Click the Add button.

You can find the "Hostname" and "Value" on the Sending > Verified Senders > Sender domains section of your SMTP2GO Dashboard.

Repeat step 2 for each required CNAME record.
