DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web security substantially and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
When you purchase any of the Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your shared web hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that the messages are legitimate, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain name, all e-mail addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you will not have 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 addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be very important when you use email communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic emails from forged ones.
