How To Add and Verify DKIM Keys

Matthew Nestor

This document will explain how to add and verify DKIM keys. These keys are a DNS record required for the ClickFunnels platform to send emails using your custom domain. A default DKIM key is generated for the root domain when setting up a new domain. If the record was not verified during the domain setup process, you could use these instructions to verify it manually.

Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

  • An active ClickFunnels 2.0 account.
  • A custom domain with access to the DNS settings.
  • The custom domain is added and verified at least once in the Workspace.

Step by Step Walk Through:

  9. Otherwise, if the automated process cannot add the record or you do not want to use the automatic method, then add the DNS record to your domain manually through your DNS provider.
