DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your web safety greatly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything on your end to activate it. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DKIM email authentication system will enable you to send trustable messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to get a semi-dedicated package, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and in case this requirement is answered, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this service, since it will ensure a higher security level for your e-correspondence.
