DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will heighten your web security dramatically and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send emails, 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 tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain in a shared hosting account with us, all the needed records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be set up by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , provided that it also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, while a public key will be added to the DNS database automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this validation system – your messages will be delivered to any destination without being rejected and no one will be able to send out email messages faking your email addresses. The latter is really important in case the nature of your web presence suggests sending out regular offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you select any of the semi-dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk emails keeps increasing every year and quite often bogus addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
