DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will heighten your online safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. 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 turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource 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 resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will permit you to send out trustable email messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps increasing every year and quite frequently false addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
