DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will boost your web safety significantly and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS 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 allow you to send credible e-mails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick one of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will include our system’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and quite often phony addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
