DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your online security enormously and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for 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 end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, since the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out periodic messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have composed a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a specific email is authentic or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use email messages to contact your business collaborators.
