DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will enhance your web safety immensely and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain name in a shared website hosting account with us, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be added to the global DNS system automatically using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will be sent to any target audience without being disallowed and no one will be able to send out emails forging your email addresses. The latter is very important in case the essence of your worldwide web presence involves sending out periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you register through your new account without any manual intervention, as our high-tech cloud web hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain name 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 DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new email, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages continues to grow each year and very frequently spoofed addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to worry about that.
