Enabling DKIM signing for your domains can help you keep your email content intact throughout the delivery process, barring threat actors from accessing and altering your emails. This helps preserve your identity and eradicate spam and phishing attacks.
Creating DKIM Record for Suresupport:
If your domain is hosted in suresupport, you need to click on the Enable button in the Mailprotection subsection of the Control panel’s DNS manager. When you enable the DKIM protection, the mail server generates the private key and public key.
- A DKIM public key: to be published in your public-facing DNS
- A DKIM private key: used by suresupport to sign your outgoing emails, that is to be uploaded on their web server
If you are using third party DNS servers you need to replicate the DNS records on them. However, if your domain is hosted with suresupport, they will be automatically updated on their DNS servers.
Alternatively, if you are using your own servers to send emails instead of suresupport’s, you can generate your DKIM key pair using our free DKIM record generator tool.
