DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out 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 bogus may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DKIM authentication system will permit you to send trustworthy e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam messages continues to grow every year and rather often forged email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to worry about that.
