My cPanel says the following warning message:
This system does not control DNS for the “example . com” domain. You can install the suggested “SPF” record locally. However, this server is not the authoritative nameserver. If you install this record, this change will not be effective. Contact the person responsible for the “clint.ns.cloudflare.com” and “cruz.ns.cloudflare.com” nameservers and request that they update the “SPF” record with the following:
It suggests the following spf value:
v=spf1 +ip4:22.214.171.124 +include:_spf.google.com ~all
I’m adding support for gmail and currently my spf record is as follows in Cloudflare:
v=spf1 +include:_spf.google.com ~all
My question is, do we need to add the website ip address to the spf record ? Or do we add the proxy ip address created by Cloudflare ? Or lastly, do we just ignore this warning message and not bother to add an ip address and just keep it as it is ?
