DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will boost your online safety greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared service that we offer without having to do anything in particular, since the obligatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular emails to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have sent a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting service come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated plan and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our email servers for the electronic signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their destination address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be extremely essential when you use e-communication in your business, since your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate messages from counterfeit ones.
