DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will increase your web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud website hosting services that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send regular email messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public encryption key that verifies if a particular message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to reach your business collaborators.
