How to Publish a DMARC Record with GoDaddy

DeploymentTechnical Guidance

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 account.
  3. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page
  4. Select DNS to view your DNS records
  5. Select Add New Record
  6. Select TXT from the Type menu
  7. Enter the details for your TXT record:
    • Make sure the record Type is TXT
    • Name/Host is set to _dmarc
    • Set Value to the DMARC record
    • Leave the TTL to its default
    • Save

NOTE: It’s always good practice to check the primary instructions at GoDaddy in case they have updated their procedure for TXT records.

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.
