Validate a Domain for Your Email Campaign

When you validate a domain, you can send from any email address on that domain without having to unlock it individually.

To validate a domain:

  • If you have not already done so, please log in to your IONOS account.
  • Click on the tile My Products > Online Marketing > Email Marketing. The campaign overview opens.
  • Click on Settings in the menu bar. The account information opens.
  • In the Sender and Domains dataset, select the entry Add a sender domain or address.
  • In the Domains  dataset, click on the Add a domain button.
  • In the field each@ enter the domain name to be unlocked without www.
  • Click on the Next button.
  • Choose one of the two options:
    Option 1: Create an empty txt file with the displayed file name in the web space of the domain to be validated. You can delete this file after verification is complete.
    Option 2: Open the DNS management of the domain to be validated and create a new TXT record. For configuration, use the values from the Host and Value fields.
  • Click the Validate Now button when you have completed the necessary configuration steps. Your domain is added to the sender domains.
  • Email addresses from a validated domain are combined in the statistics. If you need individual statistics, validate these email addresses individually. How to validate individual email statistics can be read here.
  • You can create a maximum of 100 email addresses and domains.
