How to Configure DMARC Record in cPanel

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) is an e-mail authentication method designed to help reduce e-mail abuse, such as spam. It builds upon the SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) authentication methods to provide e-mail senders and recipients a more reliable way to exchange messages.


To enable DMARC for your domain, you must add a TXT record to your domain’s DNS entries that contains the DMARC configuration data. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel
  2. In the DOMAINS section of the cPanel home screen, click Zone Editor:
  3. Locate the domain you want to configure, and then click Manage.
  4. Click the down arrow icon next to Add Record, and then click Add TXT Record.    
  5. In the Name text box, type _dmarc.
    • When your cursor leaves this text box, cPanel automatically adds the domain name to _dmarc, for example,
  6. In the TTL text box, typ14400.
  7. In the Type list box, select TXT.
  8. In the Record text box, type the DMARC configuration line.

  9. Click Add Record. cPanel adds the TXT record for DMARC.

Now you know how to setup DMARC records in your cPanel for email validation.
