DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will boost your online safety substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select one of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud hosting platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps rising each year and quite frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to bother about that.
