DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an e-signature to every email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security substantially and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to activate it. The only requirement is that the given domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private encryption 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 won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send out trustable e-mail messages, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our advanced cloud hosting platform will create all the required 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, since 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 email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will include our system’s electronic signature. The number of junk email messages continues to rise each year and very frequently counterfeit addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to bother about that.
