How to Add a DKIM Record in Namecheap?

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an anti-tamper protocol that ensures your mail remains secure in transit. DKIM uses digital signatures to check that the email was sent by a specific domain.

The steps for setting up DKIM on Namecheap are more or less the same as other portals. Follow these simple steps to secure your emails with DKIM :

  • Login to your Namecheap account.
  • Navigate to ‘Domain List’ located on the left and look for your domain.
  • Click on ‘Manage. A new window will appear. 
  • Select ‘Advanced DNS from the available options.
  • Click on ‘Add New Record.
  • Under ‘Type’, select ‘TXT record and add a string in the ‘Value field.
  • For ‘Hostname’, add your domain name in this form: something._domainkey.

  • Click on ‘Save All Changes.

DKIM has been successfully set up and can be verified using EmailAuth’s free DKIM record checker tool.
