How do I add an SPF record to my domain name?

To add an SPF record to your 123-reg domain name, please do the following:

Firstly, you need to ensure your domain is pointed to our nameservers:

  • ns.123-reg.co.uk
  • ns2.123-reg.co.uk

If the domain is not pointed to the 123-reg nameservers, you will be unable to manage them from the 123-reg control panel.

For more information on changing your nameservers please view the following article:
