DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety significantly and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a shared web hosting account with us, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in , on the condition that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your messages will reach any target destination without being disallowed and no one will be able to send out email messages faking your email addresses. The latter is rather important if the nature of your worldwide web presence suggests sending out periodic newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and as long as this condition is met, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this service, as it will guarantee a higher security level for your online correspondence.
