DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound 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 altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety dramatically and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase any of the Linux cloud service that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your account, so you won’t need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that they are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain message is authentic or not. Such a record is set up once a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important when you use email messages to reach your business collaborators.
