DKIM is an e-mail authentication method that adds a digital signature to e-mails. The recipient’s server can verify this signature with a public key stored in the DNS zone of the sender domain. This article provides further information on how DKIM works and its advantages.

This article describes how to activate DKIM. However, it’s possible that you use Hostpoint for your e-mail traffic, but your domain is managed externally, meaning that external name servers are stored. In this case, you must activate DKIM in your Hostpoint account and then file the DKIM information with your DNS provider.

To do so, proceed as follows:

  1. Activate DKIM in the Hostpoint Control Panel. Follow this guide to do this.
    → After activation, the DKIM records are displayed directly on the “Enhanced protection” page.
  2. Copy the records by using the copy function.

  3. Log in to the control panel of your domain registrar.
  4. There, open the domain management and DNS zone and paste in the copied DKIM records.
  5. Save the changes.

→ DKIM is now activated.
