DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety tremendously and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain in a shared hosting account with us, all the needed records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the DNS system automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your email messages will reach any audience without being denied and nobody will be able to send out messages forging your email addresses. The latter is rather important if the type of your web presence suggests sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and as long as this prerequisite is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this functionality, as it will ensure a higher level of protection for your electronic communication.
