DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web safety markedly and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to enable it. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will allow you to send out credible messages, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you pick any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain name that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the required records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public encryption 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 a new email message, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of spam messages keeps increasing each year and quite often fake addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to bother about that.
