Is there a registrar that will allow 2048-bit DomainKeys/DKIM values in a domain TXT record?
Posted on 2014-03-05
Hi friends. Can you help me out, please?
I host many domain registrations with HostMySite.com. I need to update the DomainKeys/DKIM TXT record values for all of my domains, from 1024-bit values to 2048-bit values (as required by Google and Comcast later in year 2014).
My email server software is SmarterMail 12 -- and it is easy to set a 2048 DomainKeys/DNS key value for a domain in SmarterMail.
However, when I log in to my registrar account at HostMySite.com and edit any of my domains and try to enter the new 2048-bit value in the TXT field, the value is rejected. The error message says that the input cannot exceed 254 characters.
That's a big problem. If I cannot enter 2048-bit values in a TXT field in my registrar's interface, then eventually, in year 2014, Google and Comcast might stop processing email for my domains.
I have asked HostMySite in the past to fix this problem by allowing more characters in the TXT records for domains. So far they have simply said -- sorry, no can do.
Since I am responsible for email hosting for about fifty email domains and 150 email accounts, I consider this a fairly urgent matter.
Assuming HostMySite.com will not or cannot fix this problem, what should I do? While I do not relish the time and expense required to move 100+ domains to a new registrar, it looks like I might have to do exactly that at some point.
I am very grateful for your advice. =)
