How to Install DKIM & SPF Records on cPanel

DKIM or Domain Keys Identified Mail record is a TXT record that adds digital cryptographic signatures to email messages, which means that it ensures that the email comes from a trusted source and hasn’t been changed or forged in transit between the sending and receiving servers

 

You can easily enable DKIM on cPanel by going to Email Deliverability, located in the Email section:

 

Click on the Manage button for the domain you wish to enable the DKIM record for:

If you want to set a default DKIM record, scroll down to Suggested DKIM Record and click on the Install button:

And if you would like to add custom DKIM records from your current email provider, you can do this by editing your TXT records.

After DKIM is enabled or added, a new DKIM TXT record will appear in your DNS zone, so please give it up to 24 hours to propogate fully, and you will be good to go!

 

SPF record or Sender Policy Framework is a TXT record that works as a security mechanism that prevents other people from sending emails on your behalf.
