DirectAdmin DMARC Setup Guide

What is DMARC?

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) is an email authentication system that protects your organization’s domains from spoofing, phishing and other cyber attacks. It builds on the widely deployed email verification techniques, SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail).


Configuring DMARC for your organization can be the best thing you can do for your business. DMARC is an email authentication protocol that helps you protect your domain from BEC and impersonation attacks, while improving your email delivery rates. If your use DirectAdmin as your DNS hosting provider, you can follow these steps for your DirectAdmin DMARC setup:

  • Click on Add to add a new DMARC TXT record 

    • In the Name field enter _dmarc 

    • In the resource type select TXT
