How to Setup Hosted DMARC

We’re excited to announce a new feature from EasyDMARC – Hosted DMARC. It allows you to manage your DMARC record(s) directly from your EasyDMARC portal. This article covers the steps you need to take to enable the feature.

Important:

Before deploying hosted DMARC, please make sure that you don’t have a DMARC TXT Record implemented by going to the DNS zone for your domain and deleting the TXT record under the Name/Host _dmarc or _dmarc.yourdomain.com if existing.

Deploying Hosted DMARC

Step 1: Head to “Hosted DMARC” in your EasyDMARC portal, Select the DMARC policy you want to apply to your domain, and click “Setup DNS.”

Not sure about what DMARC Policy you want to set?

EasyDMARC always recommends customers start with monitoring mode (p=none). This stage will let you analyze all reports and indicate which sources are legitimate. Next, you’ll be able to configure them and as a result, block spoofing or phishing attempts. Read more about DMARC Policies here.

Step 2: EasyDMARC will provide you with a CNAME record that needs to be added to your DNS zone.

Please allow a few minutes to verify the record from our end.

  • Head to your EasyDMARC “Hosted DMARC” section
  • Choose on the desired policy
  • Click “Apply Changes”
