DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety dramatically and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, because the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send out regular emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you pick a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the authentication system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the DNS system. As the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain, all email addresses created under it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the messages that you send may not be delivered to their destination email address or that someone may spoof any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really essential when you rely on e-communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic emails from spoofed ones.
