DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will increase your worldwide web safety greatly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything on your end to turn it on. 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 email messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes 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 option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send out credible e-mail messages, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new email, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam email messages continues to increase every year and quite often forged email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not need to bother about that.
