DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety substantially and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that they are authentic, since the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All required DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this precondition is answered, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this functionality, as it will guarantee a much higher safety level for your online correspondence.
