I'm trying to set up a DMARC TXT record for email spam a la https://support.google.com/a/answer/2466563?hl=en&ref_topic=2759254 and when submitting a TXT record with a host like _dmarc.mydomain.com. or _dmarc.mydomain.com it saves as simply _dmarc
Is this a bug?
@Heather, Google says to put "_dmarc.your_domain.com." in for the host/name and then for value use something like "v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:postmaster@your_domain.com".
Shouldn't GoDaddy support a TXT name value of "_dmarc.surfbeyond.com." and not strip everything from the period on? Sure seems like a bug to me.
Well that's not what Google says to enter for host/name entry. Did you view that Google DMARC document that I referenced? Why does GoDaddy strip the period and after in the first place? Again, I really think this is a bug and should be reported to tech team.
It's not a bug. What I've been trying to say and haven't been very effective in communicating is that our system already assumes the domain name. So it does not need to be entered under host. You can, if you want, just put _dmarc under host. This is also why the domain is removed once you save the record. Google gives generic instructions for this part because there are a lot of registry interfaces to consider.
