DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is created based on a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web security considerably and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a domain in a cloud website hosting account with us, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be added to the DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this email authentication system – your email messages will be sent to any target destination without being discarded and no one will be able to send out messages faking your addresses. The latter is pretty important in case the essence of your Internet presence suggests sending regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you select one of the semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam messages continues to increase each year and rather often bogus addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not have to bother about that.
