Whenever a domain is purchased from any domain hosting site, it needs to be authenticated also. Only purchasing the domain is not sufficient for a good domain reputation, it should be authenticated also.  
Today in the era of online marketing, no one wants spam or phishing mails in their inbox. So, they set some restrictions on their mail server. The domains which are not authenticated are not able to pass this restrictions, and as a result these domains are tagged as untrusted or spam which end up in spam folder of mail server.

Domain Authentication is done by using SPF and DKIM. After purchasing of your domain, you should update the DNS records including SPF and DKIM. After including SPF and DKIM you have to verify your email to authenticate your domain name.
