DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web security substantially and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a web hosting account with our company, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in , as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this validation system – your emails will reach any target audience without being rejected and no one will be able to send email messages forging your addresses. The latter is rather important if the type of your web presence involves sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose one of the semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud web hosting platform will set up all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, 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 email message, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk emails continues to grow each year and rather often fake addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t need to bother about that.
