Verify domain ownership

Before you launch your organisation's baseline phishing campaign, the first and most crucial step is to verify the ownership of your domain. This step ensures that Prventi can securely and legitimately deliver phishing simulation emails to the email addresses under your organisation's control.

Why Verify Your Domain?

  • Security and Legitimacy: Domain verification is a security measure that confirms you have authorized control over the domain. This prevents misuse of the platform and ensures that phishing simulations are conducted legitimately and safely.

  • Effective Campaign Delivery: Verified domains ensure that our phishing simulation emails reach your employees without being blocked by spam filters or other email security systems.

  • Compliance: Verifying your domain aligns with best practices for legal and ethical phishing simulations, ensuring compliance with various cybersecurity regulations.

Step-by-Step Guide to Domain Verification

  1. Access Domain Verification Section:

    • Log in to your Prventi account.

    • Navigate to the ‘Domain Verification’ section in your dashboard.

  2. Enter Your Domain:

    • Enter the domain name(s) you wish to use for phishing simulations.

  3. Verify Ownership:

    • Prventi will provide you with a unique verification record.

    • Add this record to your domain's DNS (Domain Name System) settings. This process may vary depending on your domain registrar or hosting service. Typically, you will need to access your DNS management interface to add the provided record.

  4. Complete Verification:

    • Once the DNS record has been added, return to Prventi and confirm the completion of this step.

    • Prventi will automatically check the DNS record for verification. This process can take up to 48 hours.
