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

You can use DKIM to add an additional level of security to the email you send via your domain name.

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

Firstly, you need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers.

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

Please note: It will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver (DNS) records to become active.
