DKIM, which is short 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 a digital signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

In case you host a domain in a hosting account with us, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain in , provided that it also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will reach any target destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send out messages forging your email addresses. The latter is truly important in case the type of your web presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you opt for one of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and quite often phony addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not have to worry about that.
