DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will increase your online safety tremendously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the e-mail 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 DNS database automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send out trustable emails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you pick any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature with any domain name that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of junk messages keeps rising every year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
