DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will strengthen your online safety substantially and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting service that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain name in question uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send regular emails to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to buy a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and as long as this prerequisite is satisfied, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this functionality, since it will ensure a higher security level for your electronic correspondence.
