DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will boost your web safety greatly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain in a shared hosting account with our company, all the needed records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in , on the condition that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your messages will be sent to any audience without being denied and nobody will be able to send messages faking your email addresses. The latter is quite important in case the type of your worldwide web presence involves sending regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All obligatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and in case this condition is answered, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this feature, since it will guarantee a higher level of security for your e-correspondence.
