It’s time to set up Fraudmarc on your domain. You’ve done everything else you can do- you added your domain, you… OK, so that’s all you’ve done so far. Nonetheless, you need to setup up your domain with Fraudmarc now. But how??

Here are some *general* steps for making the necessary DNS changes to set up Fraudmarc on your domain.

Step 1: Log into your domain registrar.

If you’re not sure who your domain registrar is, you can do a search here (look under “registrar” 👍)

You’ll need your login credentials.

Step 2: Replace your SPF record with the record Fraudmarc provided

This shows an example (fraudmarc.com). Find your domain’s record in settings under setup

Your SPF record is a TXT record (if not, it should be…😕). Replace the current TXT record with Fraudmarc’s TXT record for your domain. Don’t worry, we’ve imported your old record. After you make this change we will compress your old record and keep it up-to-date for you.

A few pointers:

If you need detailed instructions, Follow your specific registrar’s guidance (each one is a little different). Here are the most common domain registrars. (If yours isn’t here, any search engine can help you😉)

**Disclaimer: We have not written or tested the instructions provided for specific domain registrars. You may prefer to search for your registrar’s instructions yourself. These were provided for your convenience- use at your own risk!)

Step 3: Replace your DMARC record with the record Fraudmarc provided.

This will (likely) be pretty similar to the process in step 2.

A few differences:

NOTE: If you choose to use a TXT record, you’ll still be able to use our reports, but not our editors. In this case, make sure to add our include to your old policy (rather than replacing the whole record) so that we’ll receive reports along anyone else you have already added. This is not the recommended setup for Fraudmarc, but it will work.

Step 4: you’re DONE!!

You did a great job! 😌  It takes a few hours for changes to DNS to propagate (spread across the internet). After that, you can check your domain’s policy using our SPF and DMARC policy checkers to make sure that the changes look right.👏👏👏
