DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web safety significantly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. 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 fake may either be tagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
If you purchase any of the shared plans that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated by default for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created right away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that the messages are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a specific email message is legitimate or not. This record is set up as soon as a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized persons forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use email messages to touch base with your business collaborators.
