DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will increase your worldwide web security enormously and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be created by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in , on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this validation system – your messages will be sent to any audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out emails faking your addresses. The latter is rather important in case the nature of your worldwide web presence suggests sending regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and existing customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All mandatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will not need to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and in case this prerequisite is matched, a private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any address. Both you and your partners or customers can take advantage of this feature, as it will ensure a higher level of protection for your online correspondence.
