How to Set Up SPF for Enom?

An SPF record is a type of Domain Name System (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are authorized to send email on behalf of your domain. SPF records help to prevent email spoofing by verifying that the email message is coming from a legitimate source. When a mail server receives an email, the mail server can check the SPF record of the domain to verify that the email is coming from an authorized source. If the email is not coming from an authorized source, the mail server can reject the email or mark it as spam.

How to Set Up SPF for Enom

The following SPF record is automatically added to your host records if Enom is your email provider:

v=spf1 include:_spf.emfwd.name-services.com mx ?all

If you wish to update your domain’s SPF TXT record:

  • Navigate to the Host Records page
  • Follow the steps below to add a TXT record in Host Records page:
  • Select Add SPF record by choosing it from the drop-down list
  • Fill in @ in the Host Name field. (This will generate an SPF record for your root domain)
  • Fill in the SPF Text String in the Value field: 

v=spf1 include:_spf.emfwd.name-services.com mx ?all

  • Select Save

In the event that there isn’t a record for a domain, the abovementioned is an SPF record example. If you already have an SPF record, all you have to do is modify it to use Enom’s include method.: include:_spf.emfwd.name-services.com

If a domain has more than one SPF TXT record, DO NOT upload them all!
