DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This approach will strengthen your online security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated 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 feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will allow you to send out trustable e-mail messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your emails will always reach their target audience, while unauthorized 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have 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 records to be managed by our company and provided that this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this feature, as it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your online communication.
