For those of you that use GoDaddy as your DNS provider, here are brief instructions for adding a DMARC record. If your domain has been added to GoDaddy through one of their partners you’ll manage your DNS records through that hosting partner.

  1. Create your domain’s DMARC record.
  2. When you have created and verified your DMARC record, log in to your GoDaddy dashboard.
  3. Under GoDaddy’s “My Products”, find your domain you want to add the DMARC record to, then click the DNS button.
  4. Now you are on the DNS Management page, click the Add button in the Records section.
  5. Now you will see a form where you can enter the settings for your DMARC record.
    • Make sure the record type is TXT.
    • Host is set to _dmarc.
    • TXT value is set to the record generated above.

You can verify that your DMARC record is properly published using our DMARC Record Checker.  Note: it may take up to 48-hours before your record propagates, dependent on your DNS host. Published a DMARC record but haven’t received any XML Reports?
