DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will heighten your worldwide web security dramatically and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with us, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in , on the condition that your domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will be delivered to any target destination without being discarded and nobody will be able to send out messages forging your addresses. The latter is truly important if the nature of your web presence suggests sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose one of the semi-dedicated services offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you add to your new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps rising each year and rather frequently bogus addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not need to worry about that.
