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.
