DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will strengthen your online safety greatly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, 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 marked as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to activate it. The only condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM validation system will allow you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and as long as this condition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this feature, since it will guarantee a much higher protection level for your e-communication.
