DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will boost your online safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux cloud website hosting services that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your account, so you will not need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be generated instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All obligatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by us and in case this prerequisite is met, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this functionality, as it will ensure a higher safety level for your email correspondence.
