DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will boost your online safety dramatically and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not need to do anything yourself to activate it. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mails will go through our email 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 global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send trustable e-mail messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as 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 mail servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages continues to grow every year and very frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to bother about that.
