DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared web hosting that we are offering without doing anything specific, as the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept 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 clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve sent a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory 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 encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam email messages keeps growing every year and quite often bogus email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not need to bother about that.
