DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety markedly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic 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 have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will permit you to send out credible e-mails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, as 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 out a new email message, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk emails continues to increase every year and rather often spoofed email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
