DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated with 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 service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security noticeably and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, because the required records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular email messages to customers or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a particular domain, all addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the email messages that you send may not be delivered to their target address or that someone may fake any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really essential if you use electronic communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate email messages from counterfeit ones.
