DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web security enormously and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting service that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, since the obligatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website 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 name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send periodic messages to customers or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting 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 server plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by us and provided that this requirement is answered, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this functionality, since it will guarantee a higher safety level for your e-correspondence.
