DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will strengthen your web safety tremendously and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud website hosting
that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out regular emails to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server
account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. 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 given message is genuine or not. This record is set up once a new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to contact your business partners.
