DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will strengthen your online safety noticeably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , provided that it also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be published to the DNS system automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will be sent to any audience without being disallowed and no one will be able to send email messages faking your addresses. The latter is very important if the nature of your Internet presence involves sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you add to your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam email messages keeps increasing every year and very often fake addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
