DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web security enormously and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a domain name in a cloud website hosting account with our company, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in , as long as your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the DNS database automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this validation system – your emails will be sent to any target destination without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send email messages faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is very important if the type of your Internet presence involves sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the electronic signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a given domain name, all e-mail addresses created under it will have a signature, so you will not have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their target email address or that somebody may spoof any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be very important if you rely on email communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish genuine messages from phony ones.
