What is Domain authentication?

Domain authentication is a way to verify that the email sender is who they claim to be.

It is used to lower the attempts of sending fraudulent and phishing emails using your domain name.

The most commonly used email authentication standards are SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.

When sending emails, you must set DNS (Domain Name System) records to verify that you own the domain the email was sent from and that you have given the sending email server permission to send emails on your behalf. This way, your domain’s information is displayed in your email header, which can help improve the delivery rates.

The servers and recipients receiving your emails will be more likely to trust the legitimacy of your messages once you complete domain authentication.

What are the benefits of domain authentication?

The domain authentication ensures deliverability as well as helps:

  • Avoid emails being labeled as spam
  • Improve email delivery rates
  • Increase trust and credibility
  • Improve security against phishing and fraud
  • Enhance reputation
