DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will enhance your online safety tremendously and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send credible emails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited third parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email message, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam emails keeps increasing every year and rather frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to bother about that.
