For WHM version 11.40
These settings allow you to enable DKIM and SPF records. You can also configure which nameservers will be used for the new account’s domain.
Enabling DKIM or SPF email authentication settings
To enable DKIM and SPF email authentication on this account, click the corresponding checkboxes.
- SPF uses a default record of
v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:$mainip (where your IPv4 address will replace
$mainip). For more information on SPF records, visit http://www.openspf.net/SPF_Record_Syntax.
- Adding a custom SPF record to the appropriate DNS zone template will override the Enable SPF on this account setting.
- The settings on the Create a New Account screen override the server-wide Tweak Settings options for DKIM and SPF.
Nameservers are very important because they allow visitors to find the domain on the Internet. You can choose whether to use your local nameservers or to overwrite DNS
You should click the Use the nameservers specified at the Domain’s Registrar
option if the nameservers for this account will be hosted on a different server. This will allow the new account’s domain to begin the propagation
: The nameservers selected for the domain will appear in the Nameservers
Clicking the Overwrite any existing DNS zones for the account
option will check for potentially conflicting DNS
zones. If a conflict is found, the program will not shut down in error, but rather overwrite the existing DNS
zone, so that the new account’s domain can begin the propagation
Next, proceed to the Mail Routing Settings
