On this page you will find a comprehensive guide on how to publish a DMARC record in Namecheap. A DMARC record defines the rules for your DMARC implementation and should be published into your DNS. A DMARC record contains the DMARC policy that informs ISPs (like Gmail, Microsoft, Yahoo! etc.) if a domain is set up to use DMARC. DMARC Analyzer will aid you to generate your own custom DMARC record with our DMARC Record Generator.
After generating your DMARC record you should follow these simple steps to publish your DMARC record into your Namecheap DNS:
Please note this guide only works if you have the BasicDNS, BackupDNS (a legacy option), PremiumDNS or FreeDNS options within your Namecheap account.
Log into your Namecheap account and go to your ‘Domain List’. Click on the ‘Manage‘ button next to the domain you’d like to setup DMARC for.
Click on the ‘Advanced DNS‘ tab. If you already see a record which starts with _dmarc, edit this record. Otherwise click on the Add new record button.
Select TXT Record as a Type and enter _dmarc as the Host for the record. Lookup your custom DMARC Analyzer address in your DMARC Analyzer account under Setup and enter this as the Value of the record. Click on Save all changes to store your update in the DNS>
You should now wait some time before the first reports will start to arrive in DMARC Analyzer. This is due to DNS caching and the fact that the ISPs mostly send one report each day. This can take upto 72 hours.
