DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web safety markedly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, 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 pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only condition is that the given domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will permit you to send trustable emails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you add to your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain 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 encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam messages keeps increasing each year and very frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t need to worry about that.
