DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will heighten your web security noticeably and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email 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 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 authentication system will permit you to send out credible e-mail messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick any of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering, you will be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain 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 DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new message, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages continues to increase each year and quite often spoofed email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t have to bother about that.
