Set up DKIM & SPF in WHM



WHM & cPanel has been updated to create DKIM & SPF records for each domain via the cPanel API. The cPanel API is used automatically in WHM when creating a new account.

This simplifies the old manual task of setting up DKIM and SPF records, which was painful.

You will still need to setup DMARK and PTR records manually.

To set up a new account

1. Log into WHM

2. Navigate to Home > Account Functions > Create New Account

3. Under DNS Settings Box, tick box Enable DKIM & Enable SPF

WHM create a new account with DKIM and SPF

After propogation of your DNS you can check your DKIM record in external DNS lookup solutions like MX Toolbox.
