DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your online security immensely and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our name server records, a private key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send periodic emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required 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 anytime you send a new message, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages keeps rising every year and rather frequently false email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not have to worry about that.
