DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will enhance your web security enormously and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will permit you to send credible email messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose one of the semi-dedicated plans offered by our company, you will be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam messages continues to rise every year and very frequently false email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t have to bother about that.
