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 meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing mail 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 message with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will enable you to send out trustworthy e-mail messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of junk email messages continues to rise each year and quite frequently counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to worry about that.
