DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will strengthen your online safety tremendously and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud website 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 web hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT 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 functionality. The DKIM authentication system will permit you to send trustable e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter 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 Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email message, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps growing every year and very often counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
