DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

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

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select one of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, as 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 email servers, so anytime you send out a new email, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to increase every year and quite frequently bogus email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to worry about that.
