|Domain verification protects your branding and domain reputation, ensuring that only owners of a domain are able to send email on its behalf.
This article will provide information on the purpose of domain verification, as well as the process of verifying domains.
Prior to sending email from SharpSpring, you must verify the sending domain. Verification provides security for domain owners by rejecting potential spoofed mail if the sender lacks access to the domain they are trying to send from. It is the first step towards maximizing deliverability. To complete domain verification, do the following:
Important: By default, only one domain per SharpSpring instance can be authenticated with DKIM and SPF.
Note: SharpSpring Support can assist with configuring CNAME and DKIM.
After verification, you may optionally navigate to your email settings page to configure DKIM for this domain. Alignment between your verified domain and a valid DKIM signature is necessary for optimal inbox placement.
Be aware that SharpSpring will not send a verification email if the domain has site tracking already set up and running.
If you are tracking a site with SharpSpring's site tracking script, email domain verification happens without having to send and click on an email.
