DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web security substantially and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails 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 global DNS database 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 emails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you select any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud platform will set up all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new email, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps rising every year and very frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to bother about that.
