How to Set Up DKIM for KingHost?

October 11, 2023  |  2 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 KingHost

You must verify your domain ownership on Kinghost prior to setting up DKIM. Scroll down to the article’s section on domain ownership verification to read KingHost’s guide.

  • To view your email marketing dashboard, go into your KingHost account.
  • Click on the Summary tab after selecting the administration tab next to the Profile symbol.
  • This will allow you to access your DNS settings.
  • You may view your DKIM record settings from the columns in your DNS settings.
  • To check your DKIM record, click on the link located under DKIM. The DNS records portion of your domain’s DNS server will ask you to copy and paste your hostname, maintain your record type set to TXT, and put the DKIM key value in the Value field.
