DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing mail 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 forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will heighten your online safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will allow you to send trustworthy emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target audience, while unauthorized 3rd parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
