DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your online safety significantly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is authentic. 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 bogus may either be flagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared hosting that we offer without having to do anything specific, because the required records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name 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 system. In case you send out periodic emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have composed a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM activated by default, so if you select a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our email servers for the electronic signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. As the protection is set up for a specific domain name, all e-mail addresses created under it will have a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the messages that you send out may not reach their destination email address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be quite important when you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish legitimate email messages from fake ones.
