DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will heighten your online safety significantly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, all the required 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, provided that it also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System 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 validation system – your email messages will be sent to any audience without being discarded and no one will be able to send messages forging your email addresses. The latter is very important in case the essence of your Internet presence suggests sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated package, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed on our end and in case this condition is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this option, since it will ensure a much higher security level for your e-communication.
