DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will increase your web security markedly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
If you buy one of the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be issued instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, since the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you pick a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a certain domain name, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the messages that you send may not reach their target email address or that someone may fake any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be rather essential in case you use e-communication in your business, as your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish real emails from spoofed ones.
