DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound 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 with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your online security substantially and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided that the domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you won’t have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will reach any destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send messages forging your email addresses. The latter is quite important if the nature of your online presence suggests sending out periodic newsletters or offers via email to potential and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given email is genuine or not. Such a record is created when a domain is registered in an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized parties spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important when you use email messages to contact your business collaborators.
