Web Builder CS

SPF records are used to help prevent email spoofing. They help to ensure that only authorized servers can send emails on behalf of your domain. SPF records can help to improve your email deliverability.

How to Configure SPF for Web Builder CS

  • Sign in to your DNS administration interface.
  • Select DNS Template under Tools & Settings
  • You must change the DNS TXT record for SPF.
  • For Web Builder CS, an SPF TXT record will have the following syntax:

If using Web Builder CS email: TXT v=spf1 ip4: -all
For customers using 3rd parties:   TXT  v=spf1 -all 

  • This record should be published in the DNS records section for the relevant domain.

Worth noting: To activate SPF for outgoing emails using Web Builder CS if your domain previously lacked an SPF record, all you need to do is publish the aforementioned record. If your DNS already contains an SPF record, you must update it to include Web Builder CS as shown below:

Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 -all
Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 ip4: -all (Web Builder CS)
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 -all (3rd party)

  • Save adjustments.
  • Allow your DNS to process the adjustments for 72 hours.
