DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will increase your worldwide web safety enormously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux web hosting plans that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, since the necessary records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a particular email is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you will not need to worry about unauthorized individuals forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important in case you use email messages to contact your business partners.
