DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will enhance your online security dramatically and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting services that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, because the compulsory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send regular emails to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a particular email message.
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 us. 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 resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a specific email is authentic or not. Such a record is set up when a domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited persons spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important when you use email messages to get in touch with your business collaborators.
