DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be marked as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering without the need to do anything in particular, because the compulsory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send periodic emails to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so if you select a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the DNS database. As the protection is set up for a certain domain, all email addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their target email address or that someone may forge any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really essential if you use electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic email messages from forged ones.
