DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound 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 changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you host a domain name in a web hosting account from us, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain in , on the condition that it also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t have to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your emails will be sent to any target audience without being rejected and no one will be able to send email messages forging your addresses. The latter is quite important in case the type of your Internet presence suggests sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and current customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages continues to grow every year and quite often fake email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
