Question

Setting up DKIM/SPF on my domain.

I am trying to set this up for my domain’s email service. Most of the tutorials I’ve found are outdated or cover different OS. I am just wanting to make sure I do this right the first time.

This is pasted from CPanel verbatim;

CPanel:DKIM Configuration

This system does not control DNS for the “alturaswebsolutions.com” domain. You can install the suggested “DKIM” record locally. However, this server is not the authoritative nameserver. If you install this record, this change will not be effective. Contact the person responsible for the “ns3.digitalocean.com”, “ns1.digitalocean.com”, and “ns2.digitalocean.com” nameservers and request that they update the “DKIM” record with the following: lists text

Hi there @AlturasWebSolutions,

As the nameservers of your alturaswebsolutions.com domain name are set to the DigitalOcean nameservers, you need to copy the DNS records from your cPanel Zone manager and add them to your DigitalOcean DNS zone.

You can follow the steps on how to add DNS records via your DigitalOcean Control panel here:

You can add the SPF and the DKIM records as TXT records.

Let me know if you have any questions. Regards, Bobby
