DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing 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 identified by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your online security tremendously and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
If you purchase one of the Linux shared hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your shard hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued right away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited people to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you pick any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new email message, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of spam emails keeps growing each year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not need to worry about that.
