DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will strengthen your online security immensely and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. 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 message that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will enable you to send credible emails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unsolicited 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 hosting service that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic 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 a new message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk messages keeps rising every year and rather often phony email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t need to bother about that.
