DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety immensely and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a shared hosting account with us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, provided that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this validation system – your emails will reach any target destination without being disallowed and no one will be able to send email messages faking your email addresses. The latter is truly important in case the type of your online presence involves sending out regular offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you register through your new account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created 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 whenever you send a new email message, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of junk emails keeps rising every year and rather frequently spoofed addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t have to worry about that.
