How to Add DMARC record in cPanel

DMARC stands for “Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance.” DMARC is protocol that uses SPF and DKIM to determine the authenticity of an email message. DMARC requires both SPF and DKIM to fail in order for it to act on a message.

  • 1) Login to cPanel.
  • 2) Click on Zone Editor icon under the Domains section.
  • 3) Select type as TXT, enter name [example] , TTL value as 14400 and enter the TXT record. [In the Record text box, type the DMARC configuration line.]
  • Address: The text depends on the way you want servers to handle your emails:
  • none – Take no action. Log affected messages on the daily report only.
    v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
  • none with report – sends report of failed validations to a valid email of yours (example: [email protected])
    v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; ruf=mailto:[email protected]; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
  • reject – Cancel the messages
    v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
  • quarantine – mark messages as spam
    v=DMARC1; p=quarantine; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400

Please allow several hours for propagation. If you wish to double-check the validity of the added record, you can do that on this website:
