DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting service that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, since the compulsory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out periodic messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and as long as this condition is fulfilled, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or customers can benefit from this feature, since it will guarantee a higher safety level for your online correspondence.
