If you use Namecheap.com to host your website with your domain name, you more than likely have your own email address associated with that domain (firstname.lastname@example.org). If this is the case, you will want get our domain "Verified". Why verify your domain? The primary reason for OwnerRez users is so that your email address will also be verified. Once your domain has been verified, any emails associated with are automatically verified.
If you own your own domain, say acmevacations.com, you can set DNS records that verify us as a sending server. Once you do that, we'll switch over to sending directly FROM your verified email address -- say email@example.com. Of course your domain will be different, and you can pick any prefix, like your name.
Go to Settings > Verified Email Domains.
On that page, click the "Verify Domain" button. On the next page (as shown below) enter your website name in the field provided. Make sure there are no spaces at the beginning or end. Also make sure you don't include any http, www, or other characters.
Then click the green "Save and View Instructions" button. The next screen will look like this:
2. If you are already logged in, you will be asked to do so. Then you will be brought to the dashboard.
3. Inside the dashboard, click Manage next to the domain you would like to verify.
4. Next select Advanced DNS.
5. You should now see all your DNS records. Click the Add New Record button and set both the CNAME and TXT records by copy and pasting the Hostnames and Values from the verified domain page inside OwnerRez. Make sure to click the check mark on the right side to save the CNAME and TXT records as you add them.
- Host = Hostname
- Value/Target = Value
You can ensure that you have set your DNS settings correctly by going to Settings > Verified Email Domains, then select the domain you were setting up. Click the Check Status button at the top. If you setup your DNS setting correctly, you will get a success message and see the status for each record as verified.
Wait at least an hour after making changes before testing - it can take some time for DNS changes to propagate across the Internet.
