DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety substantially and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain name in a shared hosting account with our company, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen once 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 created on our email servers, while a public key will be sent to the DNS database automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will reach any target audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out messages forging your email addresses. The latter is truly important in case the type of your worldwide web presence suggests sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your brand new account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send out a new email, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of spam emails continues to grow every year and rather often forged addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t have to bother about that.
