Frequently asked questions


How do I activate DMARC for my domain?
DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance. DMARC is used together with SPF and DKIM. DMARC provides instructions for what mail servers should do with e-mails with a sender address on your domain that does not match the SPF and/or DKIM for the domain, and whether reports should be sent from mail servers about received e-mails that fail SPF and/or DKIM.

If you use Domainnameshop as an e-mail provider, we have set up basic DMARC information for your domain:

 "v=DMARC1; p=quarantine"

You are free to change this yourself to a stricter DMARC policy if you wish.

If you use external e-mail providers, they may recommend that you activate DMARC on your domain.

DMARC is set up in "advanced settings" in the DNS control panel for your domain, by entering a TXT record with the hostname _dmarc .

To add this type of pointer for your domain, do the following:

  1. Log in to the control panel at
  2. Click on My Domains
  3. Click on the relevant domain
  4. Click the DNS Pointers tab at the top of the page
  5. Click Show advanced settings
