DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the outgoing 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 edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will increase your online security greatly and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
If you buy one of the Linux shared hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you register under your shared account, so you won’t need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created straight away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a certain message is legitimate or not. This record is set up when a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server 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 email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important when you use emails to touch base with your business allies.
