Setting up SendGrid SPF/DKIM DNS records in GoDaddy

Don't use GoDaddy? Follow the instructions here instead.

Step 1

Log in to your GoDaddy account.

Step 2

Expand the Domains section and find the domain you wish to set the DNS for.

Step 3

Click DNS for that domain.

Step 4

You'll add three records to your DNS configuration: MX, SPF, and DKIM. These records correspond to the values you see in the Deliverability Settings panel for your domain.

To create a new record, select ADD.Step 5

Add an MX record. For the MX record, select MX as the Type, and populate the additional fields as shown in your DNS settings panel in Front.

Note that the above values are examples only. The text you see in your Front settings will be different!

Enter those values into the additional fields in GoDaddy. Then click Save.

Step 6

Add an SPF record. For the SPF record, select TXT as the Type, and populate the additional fields as shown in your DNS settings panel in Front.

Enter those values into the additional fields in GoDaddy. Then click Save.

Step 7

Add a DKIM record. For the DKIM record, select TXT as the Type, and populate the additional fields using the channel settings from Front, as shown below.

Again, note that the values above are examples only. The text you see in your DNS settings will be different.

Enter those values into the additional fields in GoDaddy. Then click Save.

Note: For these three previous steps, you should enter the subdomain as the host value only. For example, enter "front-mail", rather than "front-mail.mydomain.com"

Your domain has now authorized Front servers to send on its behalf. Read the article for more information about deliverability settings and SPF/DKIM records.

  • Rather than just images.. can you supply the text for the txt values?  they are cut off and one cannot see them!
