DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the sending server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting packages that we are offering without doing anything specific, because the obligatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send regular email messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you select a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the DNS system. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain, all email addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not be delivered to their target address or that somebody may forge any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really important if you rely on email communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish legitimate email messages from fake ones.
