DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your web security immensely and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
If you purchase any of the shared hosting plans that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain that you register under your web hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be created instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that they are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular message is authentic or not. Such a record is created once a domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created 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 won’t have to worry about unsolicited parties using your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important when you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
