DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will boost your web security considerably and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the given domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DKIM email validation system will permit you to send out trustworthy e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It 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 confirms if a specific message is genuine or not. This record is created as soon as a domain name is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not need to worry about unauthorized people forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential if you use email messages to get in touch with your business partners.
