TXT Record DKIM domainkey

Ok, I’ve waited my 48 hours. My text record is still not showing up!




I’ve been running “dig” on my website to check for the txt records and it never shows up. Just as a test I created a temporary txt record using “@” and “abc123” as a test, and it shows up almost immediately! Definitely not 48 hours. I can also enter the above DKIM key using “@” and it shows up. Does Cloudflare not like “default._domainkey”???

If I see good, is there a missing ; at the end?

May I ask what is your domain and what tools have you used to test it regarding the “dig”?

Also, if you currently have a TXT default._domainkey record added to your domain?

… For some reason, TXT records for DKIM are not available through regular DNS propagation tools. You will be able to check them using a special DKIM checker …

Kindly, try with this tools:

My domain is https://huskydevelopment.com
I will add the semicolon immediately!
Yes the key is currently in my txt records.

Could be I am wrong about the semicolon thing - which if you would have more parameters after, then it would matter I think.

Valid from now on:

Also, if already not having, do not forget to add a TXT record for SPF for more benefits, and if possible setup the TXT for DMARC too. I recommend that :wink:

Yes, thanks for that website. It appears to be working properly according to it. However, why can’t I see my DKIM TXT record from a dig command, or from other online TXT Record lookup tools?

Even I am not 100% sure :smiley:

First run an was error, then on third-fourth it showed up using online tools aswell.

Running this command when you added a TXT record for your DKIM dig default._domainkey.huskydevelopment.com txt would give the output of:

Thank you! Didn’t realize you had to specify more then just the domain name to locate the record. I’ll mark your answer as the solution. :slight_smile:
