How do I set up a DKIM record on my domain name?

To set up a DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) record on your domain name, please do the following:

Before you begin, you need to ensure your domain is pointed to our nameservers:

  • ns.123-reg.co.uk
  • ns2.123-reg.co.uk

If your domain is not pointed to the 123-reg nameservers, you will be unable to manage them from the 123-reg control panel.

For more information on changing your nameservers please view the following article:
