What is Domain Verification?

When you are ready to expand Kore to reach across a company, you can establish a Kore account for your domain. As the Enterprise Admin for your domain, you can can invite Kore users, decide which users you will manage, and perform many other important administrative tasks.

Kore requires a domain verification before an Enterprise Admin takes control of the Kore users in that domain for Free Kore plans, and paid plans established using online upgrades. A domain verification is how Kore knows that the Enterprise Admin actually has direct controlling access to the company domain, or at least knows somebody who does have controlling access.

For enterprise accounts with a Kore sales contract with fixed user subscriptions, domain verification is optional, but recommended.

So Why Verify my Domain?

You must prove to Kore that you own the domain. You wouldn't just want anyone to sign up and claim they are the owners of your company domain, now would you? After you verify your domain, you can be assured that all Kore messaging such as chat or email, is securely controlled and accessed by only your Kore users in your domain.

Claiming a Domain

To get started with Kore messaging for you domain, you will need to claim your domain. First, create a free Kore account at https://app.kore.com/ using an email address from your enterprise domain. For a new account, you will have to verify your email address using the email verification sent to the enterprise email address you registered with. After you complete registration, and log on to Kore messenger, you can click Claim Domain located on the top navigation bar as shown in the following illustration.

After you log on, you can start the domain verification process by clicking Begin Verification on the Domain Management page as shown in the following illustration.

How to Verify my Domain

Basically, for Kore to verify that you are the domain owner, or at least have administrative control in that domain, Kore provides a unique token that must added to your domain.
