DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web security significantly and you will be sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared web hosting packages that we offer without having to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out regular email messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the protection is set up for a specific domain name, all e-mail addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the email messages that you send may not reach their target address or that someone may spoof any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be quite important in case you use email communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from forged ones.
