DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain in a cloud web hosting account from us, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be added to the DNS 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 email validation system – your email messages will be delivered to any target destination without being discarded and no one will be able to send email messages forging your addresses. The latter is very important if the nature of your online presence involves sending regular offers or newsletters via email to potential and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages continues to rise every year and very often phony addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to worry about that.
