DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will heighten your web security immensely and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. 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 turns out to be forged may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux hosting packages that we offer without doing anything specific, since the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send regular emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have sent a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All obligatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and if this condition is fulfilled, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any address.
