How to Edit Your Cloudflare DNS Records

Shown only logged in

If you have not yet first read about Setting up a Custom Domain, please read that first.

To send emails in Postaga from a custom domain, you will need to change the DNS records in your provider’s settings.

To do this, you will need to own a domain to send from (e.g. “”) and have access to the DNS settings in Cloudflare.

This help doc specifically is meant to help you if your domain is registered with / hosted with Cloudflare.

If your DNS is not with Cloudflare, you can see here for more general help on editing DNS records.

To edit your DNS records, you will need to log into your Cloudflare account.

Next, you will need to find the appropriate DNS records listed in your Postaga account to add in Cloudflare.

You can get these records by going to your account APIs page and clicking the checkbox under custom domains. Here is a screenshot of an example below:

Using Cloudflare, you will need to:

Click the domain in question.

Click the DNS icon.

On this next page, you will see a list of the DNS records for your domain. This page is where you edit them.

You will see the list of records like this:

cloudflare dns

Then, you will add additional DNS records from the Postaga API page. These will include:

  1. Two CNAME records
  2. Two MX records
  3. Two TXT records (one is the SPF record, one is the DKIM / domain key record)

You should not need to modify or delete any existing DNS records that were already there.

Specifically for Cloudflare: You may need to click the “proxy status” button next to the CNAME records so it will say “DNS only” instead of “proxied”.

Then, save the records you added by clicking the blue Add Record button after entering each record.

Next, you can go to your Postaga API page and click “Recheck DNS” at the bottom of this page, and Postaga will verify the records.

Sometimes, it may take a few minutes for the records to update.

Once you see the checkmarks next to the MX records, your custom domain is confirmed.

Now, any campaigns that you send out will send from your custom domain.
