DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your online security enormously and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out messages, 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 tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux website hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, as the obligatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain name in question uses our NS 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 DNS system. In case you send regular messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have written a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you opt for any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of spam messages keeps rising every year and very frequently fake addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
