DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
If you purchase one of the Linux website hosting services that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you register under your shared web hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are authentic, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated services come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you choose this type of hosting and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. As the protection is set up for a given domain, all addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their target email address or that someone may spoof any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be extremely essential in case you rely on electronic communication in your business, as your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic email messages from phony ones.
