DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP 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 message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your online security tremendously and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient 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 marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, since the obligatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular emails to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a given email message is genuine or not. This record is set up the moment a domain name is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized parties using your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use emails to contact your business allies.
