How to set up DMARC for Hostinger in Valimail

Updated over a week ago
SPF(supported)
DKIM(recommended)

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Hostinger and how they are managed in Valimail. While only one of the two authentication methods is required for an email to pass DMARC, our recommendation is to configure both whenever possible.

Configuring DKIM authentication for your Hostinger emails

If you use Hostinger Email with your domain, the default DKIM records are the following:

Type

Host

Points to

TTL

CNAME

hostingermail-a._domainkey

hostingermail-a.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300

CNAME

hostingermail-b._domainkey

hostingermail-b.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300

CNAME

hostingermail-c._domainkey

hostingermail-c.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300

For subdomains, instead of the @ in the host field, enter the name of your subdomain; e.g. the DKIM records for the subdomain shop.domain.tld, will look similar to this:

Type

Host

Points to

TTL

CNAME

hostingermail-a._domainkey.shop

hostingermail-a.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300

CNAME

hostingermail-b._domainkey.shop

hostingermail-b.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300

CNAME

hostingermail-c._domainkey.shop

hostingermail-c.dkim.mail.hostinger.com

300
