Step 9. You may configure the DNS settings of the cPanel account.

DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) – enabling this DNS will allow account user to use DKIM for email authentication purposes.

SPF (Sender Policy Framework) – highly recommended to avoid emails being spoofed.

Use the nameservers specified at the Domain’s Registrar – automatically copies the nameservers that are set (from the domain registrar) for the domain names added in the account.
