DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will heighten your web security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud plans that we are offering without doing anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send periodic emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you pick a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a particular domain name, all e-mail addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you will not need to worry that the email messages that you send may not be delivered to their destination address or that someone may spoof any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be rather important in case you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish real email messages from phony ones.
