DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders 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 email address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will boost your online safety significantly and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a hosting account with our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, provided that your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will be sent to any destination without being discarded and no one will be able to send emails forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is rather important if the type of your worldwide web presence involves sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created 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 mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our system’s electronic signature. The number of spam messages keeps increasing every year and quite often bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to bother about that.
