DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will heighten your online security tremendously and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be created by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the DNS database automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your email messages will be delivered to any audience without being denied and no one will be able to send messages forging your email addresses. The latter is quite important in case the nature of your online presence suggests sending regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select any of the semi-dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise each year and very frequently forged addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to bother about that.
