DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security immensely and you will be sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a domain in a shared web hosting account with us, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , as long as your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, while a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your email messages will be sent to any target destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send emails forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is pretty important in case the type of your worldwide web presence involves sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing customers.
