DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an e-signature to every message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your web security enormously and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
If you host a domain in a hosting account from us, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be added to the global DNS database automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your email messages will be delivered to any destination without being discarded and nobody will be able to send messages forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is very important if the type of your Internet presence involves sending regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of junk email messages keeps increasing each year and rather frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to worry about that.
