DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified using 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 recognized by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
When you buy one of the Linux cloud service
that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be generated right away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you opt for one of the Linux semi-dedicated service
offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise every year and quite frequently spoofed addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t need to worry about that.
