DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will allow you to send trustable email messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target destination, whereas unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with DKIM activated by default, so if you pick a semi-dedicated hosting plan and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be set up automatically – a private cryptographic key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. As the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain name, all email addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you will not need to worry that the messages that you send out may not be delivered to their target address or that somebody may spoof any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be really important when you rely on electronic communication in your business, as your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish real emails from forged ones.
