DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety enormously and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will enable you to send out trustworthy messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
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 plan and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. As the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain, all e-mail addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the email messages that you send may not be delivered to their destination address or that somebody may fake any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be quite important when you use email communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from forged ones.
