DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety markedly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
If you host a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided that it also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be generated on our mail servers, while a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your messages will be delivered to any destination without being rejected and no one will be able to send email messages forging your email addresses. The latter is rather important in case the nature of your Internet presence suggests sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you select any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new email message, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and quite often spoofed email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not have to worry about that.
