DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will increase your worldwide web security noticeably and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-enabled for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DKIM authentication system will allow you to send credible e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, since 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 every time you send out a new email, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps growing every year and quite frequently false email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to worry about that.
