DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will heighten your online security substantially and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not need to do anything yourself to enable it. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will enable you to send out trustable e-mail messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a specific email message is authentic or not. This record is set up once a brand new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to reach your business collaborators.
