DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will enhance your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to enable 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 emails will go through our email servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DKIM authentication system will permit you to send trustworthy email messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All compulsory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to buy a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and provided that this prerequisite is answered, a private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this service, since it will ensure a higher protection level for your email communication.
