DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each 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 sending server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will heighten your web safety noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send out trustworthy messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and in case this precondition is satisfied, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this functionality, since it will ensure a much higher security level for your email communication.
