Adding SPF/DKIM DNS records to your domain

Adding SPF/DKIM DNS records to your domain name will help improve email delivery and reduce spam mail. To add these DNS records to your domain (if you have a hosting account with LetsHost), you will need to do this via your cPanel control panel. Please see the following steps to set these records up:

  1. Log in to your LetsHost Client Area and click on Services > My Services

  2. You will see your products/services listed out here. Click on Active beside your hosting package

  3. On the left, click on the link Login to cPanel

  4. Once in the cPanel control panel, click on the icon for Email Delivery under the Email section

  5. Click Manage beside the domain you want to update

  6. For DKIM click the "Install The Suggested Record"

  7. For SPF click "Customize" under the value option

  8. scroll down to additional settings

  9. Click add A New "+include" Item

  10. Enter in the text box

  11. Tick the Use the “-all”  Entry checkbox

  12. Click Install A Customized SPF Record

Please note that adding these DNS records will take a few hours to propagate fully. If your domain is not using LetsHost nameservers, you will see the SPF and DKIM DNS records listed in cPanel - you can copy these and send them on to the provider responsible for the nameservers your domain is using.

If you require further information/assistance on this, please Open a Ticket and a member of the team will be happy to assist further.
