DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP 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 changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will boost your online security substantially and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared web hosting that we offer without needing to do anything specific, since the needed records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send regular email messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have written a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a certain email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a brand new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unsolicited persons using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use emails to contact your business partners.
