DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of 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 message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety substantially and you will be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will permit you to send out trustworthy email messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails continues to increase every year and quite often phony addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to bother about that.
