Hello below is a DKIM generated by Cpanel and also shown in the WHM > Edit DNS / BIND form

Because I cannot use my own Cpanel's BIND / my own name servers I have use my hosts DNS service.

The second to last character is a \ backslash, looking at other DKIM on the web it appears to be a \; line break.

Unfortunately when I try to save the DKIM in the hosts DNS service this causes an error even when placed inside quotes "\"

Removing the "\" symbol so there is just a "QAB;" at the end I have ran the DKIM though some checkers with out this and it seems valid. So my question; is my modification of the DKIM ok to use?

Hello :)

This is discussed on the following thread:

DKIM and CloudFlare

It references CloudFlare, but could also apply to any remote DNS host.

Thank you.
