GoDaddy

This guide is intended to show how to create the various DNS records that can be configured to authenticate and white-label your mail processing through SocketLabs.

  1. Go to https://www.godaddy.com/ and sign-in to the account your domain is registered under.
  2. In the My Account page you are redirected to, click the Launch button next to Domains.
  3. Choose the domain you wish to white-label in the Domains page.

CNAME Records for Engagement Tracking and Custom Bounce Domain

  1. In the Domain Details page, click the DNS Zone File page.
  2. Under Zone File, click Add Record.
  3. Change the Record to CNAME (Alias).
  4. In the Host field, enter your desired host name.
  5. In the Points to: field, enter tracking.socketlabs.com
  6. Click Finish to publish your CNAME record (or Add Another if you wish to continue adding more records).

CNAME Records For Custom DKIM Signing

Only publish this record if you plan on using the Custom DKIM signing option, rather than Advanced DKIM. If you wish to use the Advanced DKIM Signing option instead, see instructions below.

  1. Under Zone File, click Add Record.
  2. Change the Record to CNAME (Alias).
  3. In the Host field, enter dkim._domainkey
  4. In the Points to: field, enter dkim._domainkey.email-od.com
  5. Click Finish to publish your CNAME record (or Add Another if you wish to continue adding more records).

Advanced DKIM

It is recommended that you use the DKIM Generation Wizard and use the private and public key pair generated.

  1. Under Zone File, click Add Record.
  2. Change the Record to TXT (Text)
  3. In the Host field, enter yourselector._domainkey
  4. In the TXT Value: field, enter k=rsa; p=yourpublickey
  5. Click Finish to publish your public key (or Add Another if you wish to continue adding more records)

SPF

  1. Under Zone File, click Add Record.
  2. Change the Record to TXT (Text)
  3. In the Host field, enter @
  4. In the TXT Value: field, enter v=spf1 include:email-od.com ~all
  5. Click Finish to publish your SPF record.
 

If Your Domain Already Publishes an SPF Record

If your domain already publishes an SPF record, you will just need to add the include:email-od.com to it. For example, if your record looks similar to:

example.com TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com ~all"

Then adding include:email-od.com to it will look as such:

example.com TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:email-od.com ~all"
