Before any simulated phishing emails can be sent to the users in your organisation, Hut Six will need to verify that the web domain is owned by your organisation.

You will be provided with a unique verification code that must be added to the Domain Name Service (DNS) records of your domain. Once this is done, Hut Six then verifies this DNS record and simulated phishing emails will be allowed to be sent out.

Click the 2nd tab towards the top of the table named 'Target Domains'.

7. Verify

Before you can click verify, you need to add a TXT DNS record to your domain.

Once you have successfully added the verification code to your DNS you will need to click 'Verify'.

If you have correctly added the DNS the 'verify' will be replaced with a tick (✓ ).


If the verify button does not change to a '✓ ' or you receive an error message, then your domain has not been verified and you will need to check that your DNS record has been entered correctly.
