To add a Google DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) record to your domain provider, you will need to do the following:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

  2. In the "Admin" console navigate to "DKIM Authentication"


    ​

  3. Select the domain you want to add the DKIM record for from the drop-down menu.

  4. Click on the "Generate new record" button to generate the DKIM record for your domain.

  5. The record will be displayed in the grey box. Copy the record, including the "Name" and "Value" fields.

Next, you will need to add the DKIM record to your domain provider:

  1. Sign in to your account with your domain provider.

  2. Find the section where you can manage DNS (Domain Name System) records for your domain. This may be in the "Domains" or "DNS" section of your account.

  3. Add a new DNS record using the "Name" and "Value" fields from the Google DKIM record. The record type should be set to "TXT" (text).

  4. Save the DNS record. It may take some time for the record to become active, as DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to propagate.

Once the DKIM record is added to your domain provider, you can return to the Google Admin console and click on the "Start authentication" button to complete the setup.

This will allow Google to start signing outgoing messages from your domain with the DKIM record, which can improve the deliverability of your emails and help protect against spam and phishing.
