DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will increase your worldwide web safety markedly and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting that we offer without doing anything specific, as the necessary records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic emails to customers or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have sent a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will not need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and in case this requirement is answered, a private key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can take advantage of this feature, as it will ensure a much higher level of security for your online communication.
