DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will boost your online safety noticeably and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the receiver 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 labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
When you order one of the shared hosting services that we’re 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 name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be issued straight away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that the messages are genuine, as the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you opt for any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will set up all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new email message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps rising each year and very often phony addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
