I have tried to add SPF record
TYPE: TXT
NAME: controlpanel.hosting.com or mywordpresshosting.com
CONTENT: v=spf1 +mx +a +ip4:MYIPVALUEXXX ~all

I have seen it is detected as SPAM message when using Wordpress system messages or even Control panel system administration message notices.
Will this record solve SPF problem?

While SPF records can definitely be helpful, they aren't a cure for messages going to spam. We have a checklist for messages going to spam at the following link that you may want to review for more details:

I have checked again.

If you install this record, this change will not be effective. Contact the person responsible for CDN.

Do you know if name is the wrong name? It contains . as the last character.
default._domainkey.XXX.hostingdomain.com.

So, if DKIM-signature does not exists, it means it is not verified as there is any s=

If you're seeing that message in cPanel, it's likely the DNS for the domain you are adjusting is not handled by the cPanel server.

You can setup the records on the local cPanel system, but you'll need to copy those over to the DNS server that is handling that domain.
