DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the sending server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web safety greatly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the given domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DKIM email validation system will enable you to send out trustworthy e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created 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 a new email, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to increase each year and rather frequently bogus email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t need to worry about that.
