DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an address under a given domain name. 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 by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to activate it. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will allow you to send out trustworthy e-mails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you choose any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us, 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 intervention, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required 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 database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise each year and very often forged email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to bother about that.
