DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your online security enormously and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to enable it. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will enable you to send out trustable emails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since 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 whenever you send a new email, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of junk messages continues to increase each year and rather often false email addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
