SPF Records

Does anyone know how to combine 4 TXT records into one?

These are the values i want to combine:

v=spf1 include:send.aweber.com ~all

v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEAqx99fV0jajeapDRWScgc4dkDALomq5W1cqpHTcqRzu1hK4VQDlLZOf7qwIAIYU4ZTzfmFvzHM8loZHHlxMMcR0vWgU/JYLGo6poOBT8xxVF/r3RIH6XRYED/fbS54xI84iU/BeokiDbCB1fCMUpk18g5xcRum/Xt8RfGdndDjmCq34zJTNgezZOkCH2Pz203J83WX1GJtSpPt91VTejZ5FTnAHCrY1EL4EuLYUo2las6iYEj+JbeCYNqNn0wCqUTgph++8UBqebYSgRkmI8R53N6X4XAoCWR1K2O2a4baCZihfKl+nWZLgln6W293Nedjpma8yB70QuN3pnMBbGCwwIDAQAB

google-site-verification=DIUzcBSlc-D6RzH5J2Yxu5FZf8AS7iedTcIs1WiXEnw

v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:103.250.215.162 include:_spf.syrahost.com ?all

What do I write in the name:
default_domainkey
or

How about the TTL, keep that at Auto?

For DNS records of the TXT type, there can be multiple at the same subdomain/“name”. For example, you can have multiple TXT records at your root domain/@/example.com:

$ dig TXT google.com
;; ANSWER SECTION:
google.com.             0       IN      TXT     "docusign=05958488-4752-4ef2-95eb-aa7ba8a3bd0e"
google.com.             0       IN      TXT     "facebook-domain-verification=22rm551cu4k0ab0bxsw536tlds4h95"
google.com.             0       IN      TXT     "docusign=1b0a6754-49b1-4db5-8540-d2c12664b289"
google.com.             0       IN      TXT     "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all"
google.com.             0       IN      TXT     "globalsign-smime-dv=CDYX+XFHUw2wml6/Gb8+59BsH31KzUr6c1l2BPvqKX8="

If you tried to combine TXT records, it would break verification. Just add all of the records individually.

For your domain key, follow Google’s instructions:

Except for the SPF records, you can only have one of those.

So, you might combine these two:

v=spf1 include:send.aweber.com ~all and v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:103.250.215.162 include:_spf.syrahost.com ?all

Into something like this:

v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:103.250.215.162 include:_spf.syrahost.com include:send.aweber.com ~all

While we are at it, if you are using Cloudflare in :orange: proxied mode, remove +a completely as it isn’t doing anything useful in this configuration.

As previously noted, you still add the DKIM and Google DNS records normally.
