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 achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web security substantially and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux web hosting that we’re offering without doing anything specific, because the compulsory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out regular messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have composed a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you pick a semi-dedicated hosting plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the authentication system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a specific domain name, all addresses created using 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 address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be really essential if you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish real email messages from forged ones.
