DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will increase your online safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send 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 phony may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so in case you pick a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email authentication system will be set up automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the DNS database. As the protection is set up for a given domain name, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their destination address or that somebody may fake any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be really essential if you use e-communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish legitimate messages from forged ones.
