DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will increase your web safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for 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 end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to enable it. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will enable you to send credible email messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
