DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will heighten your online safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX 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 includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send trustworthy e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
