Hypernode

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a method for email senders to digitally sign email messages in a way that can be verified by email receivers. This allows receivers to verify that the message truly came from the sender, and has not been tampered with. DKIM is intended to address some of the flaws in the existing email system, such as spoofing, phishing, and message tampering.

Steps to Configure DKIM for Hypernode

To activate DKIM if your domain is hosted at Hypernode, perform these steps:

  • Sign in to your Hypernode Service Panel.
  • Click the domain you wish to activate DKIM for.
  • Select on E-mail under the Instellingen menu.
  • Locate the DKIM configuration option.
  • Once the DKIM page has loaded, select the Activeer button to start using DKIM.

The remaining steps, such as signing your outgoing emails and publishing the DKIM public key on your DNS, will be taken care of in the background by Hypernode support, so you won’t need to set up the protocol manual. The activation procedure can take up to 4 hours.

If another server is hosting your domain and not Hypernode perform these steps:

  • Sign in to your Hypernode Service Panel.
  • Click the domain you wish to activate DKIM for.
  • Select on E-mail under the Instellingen menu.
  • Locate the DKIM configuration option.
  • Selecting the Activeer button will bring up the DKIM page.
  • You will receive a TXT record that you must manually publish on your DNS (the DKIM public key)

Please get in touch with your DNS provider to access your DNS. Make a TXT record with a 1-hour TTL. In the Host/Name box, paste the hostname, and in the Value field, paste the value of the related entry. Save your record, then let your DNS a few hours to take effect.

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