DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will boost your web safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting service that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, 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 email servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk email messages keeps growing every year and rather often counterfeit email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to worry about that.
