DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will boost your online safety markedly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, 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 end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting packages that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you’ve sent a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication system will be set up automatically – a private cryptographic key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a specific domain, all email addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the messages that you send may not be delivered to their target email address or that someone may forge any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be very essential if you use e-communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish real emails from spoofed ones.
