DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP mail 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 message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web security considerably and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
When you buy one of the Linux cloud web hosting service that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain that you register under your web hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be generated momentarily on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated server package, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and provided that this precondition is answered, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this service, as it will guarantee a higher level of safety for your e-correspondence.
