SPF record in cPanel – How we add and enable the record

by | Feb 15, 2021

Trying to enable an SPF record in cPanel? We can help you.

Usually, we add SPF records in the DNS zone file to prevent the spoofing of the domain.

As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several SPF record queries.

Today, let’s discuss SPF records and see how our Support Engineers add them easily.

 

Why do we add an SPF record in cPanel?

Before getting detailed into the topic, let’s first discuss the benefits of adding SPF records.

The act of interrupting a communication from an unknown source that pretends as a trusted source is Spoofing.

Spoofing gains access to the target’s personal information and spreads malware through infected links and attachments. One major measure to address spoofing is to use SPF records.

A Sender Policy Framework or SPF record indicates which mail server has the authorization to send mail for a domain.

Adding an SPF record in the DNS zone file is the best way to stop spammers from spoofing the domain.

So, as we said, setting SPF records will reduce the chances of spoofing and thus saves the confidential information from being corrupted.

We add SPF record in the domain’s DNS zone file as a TXT record and it identifies authorized SMTP servers for the domain.

Let’s now discuss how to enable SPF records in the cPanel.

  1. Firstly, we need to login into the cPanel account.
  2. Then, we select the ‘Authentication icon‘ from the e-mail category.
  3. A new window will open, there we need to choose the option to enable SPF records.
  4. Then, we click on the Enable option.
