DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will enhance your web security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud website hosting plans that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, since the required 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 given domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up 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 use this type of hosting, you will not have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and in case this requirement is answered, a private encryption key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can take advantage of this option, as it will guarantee a much higher security level for your email communication.
