DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web safety dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not have to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will allow you to send out trustworthy emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your emails will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should 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 actually the public encryption key that confirms if a given email message is authentic or not. This record is set up once a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers 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 reach your business associates.
