Forums -> Domain Name Help -> setting up SPF and DKIM with email forwarding

Sorry if this is answered elsewhere, I couldn't find it.

My email provider,, is asking me to set up SPF and DKIM.
I found the help pages for how to add TXT records for SPF and DKIM.

Both pages note that "You must enter a Domain Record type (A/AAAA/CNAME/Forwarding) if you want to use a TXT Record."
I don't understand how to do this part, especially which of these I should choose.
Currently I am only using email forwarding, so I just have some MX records entered on the EMAIL FORWARDING tab, and nothing entered on the DNS tab.

So what do I need to change to set up SPF and DKIM?

You will need to set a record type for the domain itself (at the top of the page).  If you have no website, you can forward the domain to an existing URL or choose 'A' for the record type and enter in a bogus IP (  If you choose the latter, visitors to the site will see an error page, but you’ll be able to save your entry.
