DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will boost your online safety tremendously and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared website hosting packages that we offer without doing anything in particular, because the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have composed a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the necessary records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new message, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to rise each year and quite often fake addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to bother about that.
