DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will increase your worldwide web safety dramatically and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a website hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will enable you to send trustworthy emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unauthorized 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and in case this requirement is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this option, as it will guarantee a higher security level for your e-correspondence.
