How to Set Up DKIM for Enom?

October 6, 2023  |  < 1 min read

DKIM uses cryptographic signatures and public-key infrastructure to verify that an email message has not been altered during transit and that it truly came from the claimed sender. Email senders can use DKIM to sign their messages by adding a DKIM-Signature header field to the messages. Email receivers can then use the public key published in the DNS to verify the signature and check that the message has not been tampered with. 

Steps to Configure DKIM for Enom

DKIM is supported in host records by Enom’s DNS. However, you must be utilizing Enom’s DNS for your hosting in order to take advantage of this service.

Note that only 1024-bit DKIM keys are supported by Enom’s Host Records due to the maximum length restriction. Follow these steps to configure DKIM for Enom:

  • Go to your domain’s Host Records page.
  • Select Add New on the Host Records page and type ._domainkey into the Host Name area.
  • If you are using a DKIM Selector, format your hostname as follows: s1._domainkey (using s1 as your example selector)
  • From the drop-down selection for Record Type, choose TXT.
  • Fill out the Address box using the DKIM record value you generated using our DKIM record generator.
  • To complete the procedure, click Save.

Use our free DKIM record lookup tool to validate the published DKIM record.
