DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web security greatly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase any of the cloud plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to 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 built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are legitimate, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you pick one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our advanced cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages continues to increase every year and rather frequently fake email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
