DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will enhance your web safety substantially and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will enable you to send trustworthy e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
