DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target destination, whereas unsolicited third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
