DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private key that’s available on the sending server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will increase your web security noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux web hosting that we offer without the need to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out regular email messages to customers or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have sent a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud 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 record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of junk emails continues to grow each year and very often counterfeit email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not need to bother about that.
