How can I use your Email plan using DNS?

To connect your domain name to your Dynadot email hosting plan using DNS, you can create the MX and TXT records using the steps below:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to the domain name associated with your Email plan and click on the "Action" button.
  4. Choose "DNS Settings" from the "Action" list.
  5. On the DNS Settings page, select "Dynadot DNS" from the top drop-down menu.
  6. Under the "Domain Record" section, select "MX" from the "Record Type" drop-down.
  7. Enter "webhost.dynadot.com" in the "Mail Host" section.
  8. Set the "Priority" to "0", the highest priority.
  9. Under the "Domain Record" section, select "TXT" from the "Record Type" drop-down.
  10. Enter " v=spf1 mx include:webhost-mail-out.dynadot.com include:spf.webhost.dynadot.com ~all" in the "IP Address or Target Host" section.
  11. Next, go to the "Subdomain Records" section.
  12. Enter "default._domainkey" in the "Subdomain" field, select "CNAME" as the "Record Type", and enter "clients._domainkey.webhost.dynadot.com" in the "IP Address or Target Host" area.
  13. Add another subdomain record and enter "_dmarc" in the "Subdomain" field, select "TXT" as the "Record Type", and enter "v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:[email protected]" in the "IP Address or Target Host" area.
  14. Press the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

NOTE: The SPF record will help prevent spoofing and let email servers know your message is not spam.

Your settings should look similar to what is shown below: (click to enlarge)
