DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s 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 identified by mail service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the given domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic 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 enable this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will permit you to send credible emails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of spam email messages continues to increase each year and very often fake addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to worry about that.
