DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will heighten your web safety markedly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a website hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM validation system will enable you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you’re 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 compulsory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to order a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by our company and if this precondition is met, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the global DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can take advantage of this functionality, as it will guarantee a much higher level of protection for your electronic communication.
