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:
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:
- Log in to the control panel at https://domainnameshop.com/login
- Click on My Domains
- Click on the relevant domain
- Click the DNS Pointers tab at the top of the page
- Click Show advanced settings
