DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security greatly and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a website hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to activate it. The only condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will permit you to send credible e-mail messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unauthorized 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and as long as this requirement is satisfied, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this service, as it will guarantee a much higher level of security for your e-communication.
