Ownership Verification

Many services will have a domain owner verify their ownership by setting up a TXT record. Google, for example, uses this method for their webmaster tools and google apps.

SPF

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email validation system designed to prevent spam by detecting email spoofing. It does this by verifying sender IP addressesRead more about SPF records and learn how to format one at http://www.openspf.org/.

We include a default SPF record for all domains. You can make changes to your SPF record by modifying the TXT record on your domain that starts with v=spf1. The SPF protocol only allows one SPF record per subdomain. That SPF record can contain multiple rules.

DKIM (DomainKeys)

DKIM acts as a digital signature that can be validated by recipients to ensure the mail is coming from a valid source. It associates a domain name to an email message, thereby allowing a person, role, or organization to claim some responsibility for the message Learn more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DomainKeys_Identified_Mail.

Creating a DKIM Record
Follow the general instructions above and for the text value, enter the DKIM value.
