DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to enable it. The only requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails 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 Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will permit you to send out trustworthy email messages, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All obligatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated package, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this service, as it will guarantee a higher security level for your electronic correspondence.
