DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will boost your online safety tremendously and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud website hosting service that we offer without needing to do anything specific, because the obligatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out regular messages to customers or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve written a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All mandatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to get a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by us and if this requirement is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this functionality, since it will ensure a higher safety level for your email communication.
