An SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are allowed to send email on behalf of your domain. Adding an SPF record for your domain can help protect your domain from being used in spam and phishing campaigns.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to add an SPF record for your domain:

  1. Sign in to your domain provider's website.


  2. Find the area where you can manage your DNS records. This will typically be in a section called "DNS Management" or "Advanced Settings."


  3. Locate the area where you can add a new DNS record.


  4. Select "TXT" as the type of record you want to add.


  5. In the "Host" or "Name" field, enter "@"


  6. In the "Value" or "Data" field, enter the following text:
    v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all


  7. For the TTL, leave the default settings.

  8. Save the new DNS record.

Once you've saved your changes, it may take some time for the SPF record to propagate across the internet.


Adding an SPF record for your domain is a simple process that can help protect your domain from being used in spam and phishing campaigns. By following the steps outlined above, you can easily add an SPF record for your domain and ensure that only authorized mail servers are able to send email on your behalf.
